Six of us stayed at Minerals, 3 adult, one teen, and two little ones (4 and 6). The first thing that struck me was the indoor pool which looked beautiful, but do not touch the fountains or the fish tanks, or you will evoke the wrath of the 19 year old life guard. More on the pool later.
The room was very well furbished, it had everything we needed, Our vista was the hills where the slopes cut through the trees, this would have been very relaxing, if it had not been for one thing. The wedding parties, this hotel attracts weddings like bees round honey. So if you expect to sit out on your balcony when the rhythmic thumping of Brad and Donna's 1990's revival, and enjoy a quiet bottle of wine forget it. Next to the pool, first impression was it was a family friendly pool, however after our children were scowled at by the over 60's aqua dance session, we found we were in Gods waiting room dating pool. Be aware that the local residents who paid an awful lot of money for their places are not impressed or welcoming to hotel guests.
Finally the cost to do many of the activities is very high, but being a captive audience there is very little as alternative. As I stated this is great for weddings ,but it is not a hotel for a quiet retreat.
