We were here back in April, and it's quite nice to see that folks are taking more time to clean up around the pools. There was a lack of cigarette butts on the ground, which was great. Our main complaint this trip was the unevenness of the water temps in the evening. Both small pools along the room side were below 95 degrees at night, forcing folks into the two small pools by the spa services area. The two 100 degree pools were packed to the gills, so we didn't bother trying to get in. During the day the water temps were fine for all the pools, in the 100 degree range, but at night, they need to be monitored to make sure that people can actually use them without freezing. I did notice the fellow taking water temps during daylight hours; perhaps he can do so after dark to assure warmer tubs when the sun has gone down.
Our room phone kept going off around four thirty in the morning. When it would repeatedly ring during the day with no one on the other end, I called the front desk to ask if they were trying to get a hold of us. They said no, apologized for the issue (I guess they are upgrading the system?), and I unplugged the darned thing. Problem solved.
Restaurant was fine, and since I'd left my suit here last visit, the gift shop was a treasure.
