The room was dated yet very comfortable. The in-room jacuzzi, fireplace and large TV were wonderful. And the bed was irresistibly comfortable. However, the decor was tired and needed updating, especially the bathroom. Food was fantastic and we enjoyed the games room after a big meal.
However, the spa treatments were disappointing. The aestheticians were pleasant but not really qualified to do a decent massage. The head-massage was a complete waste of money. 10 minutes on the head and 35 minutes of weak massage on shoulders and neck. On top of that, my hair and hair were slathered in oil. Head massages in spas elsewhere have not been like this and I would not have it again at Couples. Don't waste your money.
