Girl Version...My friend and I were planning a trip to PS for a short getaway. He found this place on Trip Advisor, and thought if it’s the #1 rated hotel in PS, we have to check it out, so we did. I will say, if you are looking for a nice, relaxing, clean, place to stay… this is the place to be! We were greeted with a choice of an ice cold beverage by the ever so pleasant Judy upon arrival. She was also very helpful in directing us to a few places to go to satisfy our craving for tasty food and drink. There is a nice DVD selection for you to choose from, so we took in a few movies. The pool was divine, we had a great time hanging out there and meeting some of the other guests. We liked it so much that we ended up adding on another night to our stay. This place is very worthy of its ratings, and we will definitely be recommending it to others. We will, without a doubt, be returning here, and may even have to make this an annual retreat.
Guy version….The pool was great, the beer upon arrival was ice cold and welcomed. The other guests were very cool and really seemed to be there just to chill out and relax. The staff was great and very helpful for directing us to great places to eat, drink, and dance. I liked the low key exterior of the property and then you open the gate to this cool landscaped pool surrounded by the rooms. I liked how you could dip in the pool anytime as long as you were quiet…can you say 3am? A good thing to know…a cab ride from/to down town is only 10 bucks 13 with tip. We had so much fun one night we decided to take a cab home and leave the car. Funny thing was we could not remember where we parked the next day! But eventually as memories seeped back in we put the facts together and found it. Another cool thing, we went across the street to have a few drinks at the ACE pool/bar, a fun eclectic place that had a lot of people watching. After a few hours it was so cool to walk across the street to our serene private pool in the sweet poolside king room. Yes I agree with the little lady that the rooms were very clean, the DVDs were fun, the room was big and well equipped, and everybody you met there was cool and very friendly. For example, my friend lost her earring in the pool and I tried in vain to spot it(beer goggles?). A fellow guest said he would keep an eye out for it and when we came home late that night it was taped to the door. Very cool! Give this place a shot and enjoy it! We will be back sooner than later! It is a place to really enjoy your time with whoever your with, I know I did..
