This was a very beautiful resort in the mountain of Colorado. The employees were very friendly and we had a great time. I believe this was because it was off season in early March. The only problems that we saw was the over crowding in the pools. We didn't bother going into the pools because there were so many people in them. We did, however, go into the natural springs where it's a bit too hot for children and enjoyed it very much. We noticed that the pools smelled like strong chlorine and the 3 hot spring tubs were very cloudy and didn't look clean.
My suggestion is to stay at the hotel and go into the natural springs, it's very beautiful and relaxing. There were quite a few people in there but we still found room. I'm not sure it would be crowded in summer because of the heat but it was very nice in early march when the temperature is about 40.
If you are there for a day trip be warned that there are 2 prices $18 for 2 pools and the natural springs. That's ALL you need!! Don't pay the $35 gold fee for the extra "private" pool and hot pools because it's just as crowded as the others. The only thing extra you get with the "gold" is access to showers and the juice bar (but you still have to pay) I don't even think they check for those gold bands. I saw people in the "gold" area without any bands on.
It's a great place but it's a bit pricey for what you get.
The restaurant was amazing. The food was delicious and they were stocked with very delicious wines and cocktails. It was a very nice high-end restaurant.
