I was at PB from Dec. 17 to 20th. My friend and I were 100% satisfied with our stay at the hotel except for the weather (you'd think at these prices they could guarantee 80 degree weather)! We booked a Gardenview room and were upgraded to a Bayview. Being Loews First members we got our milk and cookies and boy were those cookies huge! My friend doesn't care for cookies (weird) so I got to eat all of them! We used the Spa twice and it was great! Fitness buffs will be pleased with the Cybex weight machines and number of treadmills, bikes, steppers available. There is no charge for Loews First members which was nice since the regular fee is $12.00 a day. This also includes use of the steam room and sauna. There's a big whirlpool too. Since it was cool we were not able to swim but we did sit by the beach pool and the Villa pool. Wow, we fell in love with the Villa pool. We were the only ones there and it felt like we were in someone's backyard pool! Bottom line: this is a wonderful hotel. We are thinking about returning next year and just spending a few relaxing days at the hotel!
