My husband and I paid $365 for the Couples Romance Ritual spa package.
PROS: The front desk staff and my masseuse and my husband's masseur were all very polite and professional. The facilities were very clean and pleasing to the eye.
CONS: The hot tub had way too much chlorine in it. While I was in it my eyes were burning and tearing up and our skin was becoming itchy. So, before we had our massages, we took showers to wash off the chlorine. Our masseuses had a perplexed look on their faces and asked us why we took a shower before our massages. We told them about the chlorine issue and they told us that a woman earlier that day took a shower also because of the abundance of chlorine and itchy skin. They determined that the hot tub was most likely shocked that morning and that whoever did it used way too much chemicals. So, then we each had our massage in separate rooms and, thankfully, I didn't have itchy skin at all during the massage. However, my husband said he had to stop the massage every few minutes to deal with itchy skin and therefore it was not a pleasant, relaxing time for him at all. His masseur told him he should tell the front desk about his experience. We told the front desk girl about our experience and about the woman earlier who reacted poorly to the chlorine and she seemed very concerned and took our name and number and told us she'd have the owner or whoever is in charge call us. It's been four days now and no one from the hotel has called us. I think that if one pays $365 for a relaxing afternoon at the spa, they should get a relaxing afternoon at the spa. And if they don't, because of an error of the hotel/spa, then they should get compensated for it. I won't be going back to this spa. Spending that much money to be itchy during a suppose-to-be relaxing massage is a rip-off. My advice: make sure you check out the hot tub chemical level before paying. And if you don't react poorly to an overdose of chemicals, then go for it and have a relaxing massage. :)
