Negative Reviews


Step Ladder Into the Jacuzzi

Guests frequently complained about the step ladder that provides access to the Jacuzzi tub. Some guests who had mobility problems due to age struggled to get in the tub, and even some able-bodied guests found the entrance manner to be difficult, especially since the surface of the ladder got slippery.


The Spa Has Many Shortcomings

There was a significant amount of feedback from guests who said it seemed like the management did not understand what it takes to run a spa and that the facilities at this property were lacking many of the things that are usually standard. For example, guests said the treatment areas were not conducive to relaxation and that the changing areas were not private enough. Other guests were not asked about their skin types before receiving treatments.


A Bit Overpriced

From time to time, guests said they thought the rooms cost too much. Some said they'd look for other options on future trips.
