Deerfield spa is a basic no frills weight loss resort. We like it for that reason however, after spending the last 4 days at the spa, my sister and I were convinced that the owner plans to close soon. Everything is run down and dated. The air conditioners in the rooms need to be replaced (I had allergic reactions every night). Toilets didn't flush fully. The bed was so hard my neck hurt every morning. The exercise instructors were not up on the latest sports information and not attentive to participants needs. Nutrition lectures were given by untrained staff. There are 2 treadmills and 1 recumbent bike in the entire place and all could use servicing. As for the food, its not bad but its not good. Vegetables were overcooked. There wasn't any creative use of spices. One woman was there for a juice fast and she had to show them how to do it. There are no options for juicing, gluten free or other special diets unless you bring your own. The facials and massages are adequate at best but no way satisfactory. This seemed to be the general consensus in the dining room. One of the massage therapists admitted to my sister that she was fresh out of school and didn't know what she was doing. That's fine. We all need experience. But let your client know so they can make an informed choice. Service at meals was good as was housekeeping. The 4 days for both of us cost $2900. Not nearly as much as the famous spas, but the experience was certainly not worth the money. In the end, we realized we could probably find a nice hotel near a day-spa and do as well price-wise for 4 days or book a fitness cruise. Regardless, we won't be back.
