Almond Beach Club & Spa: Quiet & beautiful
We were originally booked for the Almond Casuarina, but the renovation wasn't finished, so our reservation was changed to the Almond Beach Club. It is for adults only, so it was very quiet and peaceful there. You can take the hotel shuttle and use the facilities at the other Almond properties (the Almond Beach Village, for families, and the Casuarina, when it is finished). Our oceanfront suite was very nice, and the food and the service was fabulous. The grounds are beautiful. Our only complaint would be that the other guests "claim" their lounge chair early in the morning by placing their beach towel on it, making it hard to find a chair later in the day. However, these guests are using the chair for only a couple of hours during the day. The management is aware of this problem, and is working on a way to manage it without alienating some of the guests.
Guests at the Club & Spa tend to be 35 & older, whereas at the Village, they tend to be younger, with children.
They really try make sure that you are completely satisfied. We were asked several times during our stay if everything was to our liking. We filled out an optional survey a few days after our arrival, and another one on our last day.
They have a spa, but we didn't use it. However, other guests told us that it was very nice. They offer a variety of services at the spa.
