On our honeymoon my wife and I found this hotel to be average in regards to the price we were charged. With a 20% discount we paid $119/night for a 2 night stay in a hot tub suite, by far the most I have ever paid for a hotel room but I really wanted the hot tub/suite experience. We enjoyed the breakfast as everything was very fresh and was a bit more extensive than the average continental breakfast. The extra large pool was also amazing even though it looked like it had not been really cleaned well in a while since the bottom of the pool was greenish. The room was nice and clean but the TV systems could use some serious updating as the remotes barely worked and we had to unplug the tv to get it to turn off. As for the more serious downside the water was very rusty due to a high mineral content. It left a solid ring around the hot tub and was slightly disturbing when bathing in brown water. I was originally planning on passing on my tips directly to hotel staff, but I decided not to do so unless the staff asked how our stay was. Upon checkout I was surprised that I was never asked this question as I have always been asked this at any other hotel that I have stayed in. Overall I'd say this hotel is nice, but for the rates that are being charged they should fix a few of these issues. With the water issue we had to make an unplanned trip to the local Walmart and stock up on bottled water for our stay since drinking the colored water was rather unpleasant due to it's metallic taste.
