We stayed one night in the Hideaway room. Cute room, but I wish I would have been able to pick one of the "crazier" rooms (which were sold out). The hideaway room is down a little stone path, so it does seem hidden away. The walls are all rock, and this room has a "roses" theme, with gilded furniture, red carpet, red velvet bedspread, fancy velvet settee, rose chandeliers and rose themed accessories. Not crazy, but the gold and red were out of the ordinary. If I was making a recommendation, I'd say pay more for one of the weirder units. The hotel is kitchy and funky, while also being rather over the top. Our room was indeed a bit musty (as other reviews have mentioned), but it was clean. I wouldn't say that the rooms are the best value ever, but you don't come here for the value, you come for the weird and the wonderful.
The steakhouse is fantastic, we really enjoyed our dinner, and the atmosphere is this amazing mix of romantic, fancy, and kitchy. Pink leather, gold cupids, great food, the whole bit. If you're coming into town and don't want to stay at the hotel, at least have dinner at the steakhouse. Pink champagne cake was awesome as well.
The hotel pool was awesome; zero-edge beach entrance pool that was heated enough for us to swim at 10pm in early June. Two nice jacuzzi's as well. Great view from the pool area. The waterfall in the pool area is pretty neat.
We are definately planning a return trip to The Madonna. This place is a unique treasure that you will always remember.
