The Japense(sp) is to dye for girl! I loved it they are so nice and the rooms are private and very professional gals. The well being would knock your socks off too I'm told.

Well Jessica, the japense silk facial is a facial and massage all in one. You get your face all pampered and it is wonderful! Then she does your shoulders and your feet and it's just wonderful and relaxing. I can't wait to do it again. My husband gave me the spa treatment for an anniversary gift last year on our visit that was my first spa experience and definetly not my last.

Drinks?

When I called to confirm my room an Operator said I would enjoy the drinks in the lobby. Does anyone know what she means?

Confused?

I read this thread and I am still confused about the West Wing. I really want in order of priority THAT BIG BATHROOM, would that be deluxe or villa. I also want a patio with a beach pool view. Is that possible? We can all be dreamers! What should I politely ask to be upgraded to?

For the big bathroom you want a deluxe room. The Villa is only a Parlor room it connects to a deluxe room that would have the large bathroom. I don't think patios are doable for the beach pool actually I'm sure there not. Now a terrace or balcony could be had. If you want a king room you should request room 2665 If you want a queen room 2667 would be a nice choice. They are dead center overlooking the pool with balconies and they are deluxe rooms.

Could someone please tell me the difference between the Delux and the bay view rooms? I booked a bay view because I love to look at boats coming and going, but it seems that most people are booking delux rooms.

I also booked a bay view. It is my understanding that the deluxe rooms are a little bigger and for some reason the pool area is apparently a bigger draw for views so is more expensive. It sounds like most of the deluxe rooms are pool views.

Most deluxe rooms are in the villa or west wing, which are closer to the beach pool. Bay view rooms may be in the east wing, which is more of a walk to the boat and beach pool.

There are plenty of Bay view rooms in the west wing. all the rooms by the boat dock are bay view, on the opposite side of the beach pool.

I believe that PBH used to have a Concierge level, but did away with it.

Hope this helps......

Yes they did, but they are bringing it back. It will be a small lounge with a small amount of rooms like RP. It should be opening early spring.
