We stayed 3 nights for a special occasion.
We couldn't have asked for better service. There was a small issue, but it was fixed right away.
The pools are well taken care of and so are the grounds.
Very nice, clean apartments with robes and a hairdryer and a kitchen with even a teapot and toaster present. If you plan to cook at all, bring a decent knife (the only thing missing.)
They may be doing construction and will not tell you unless you ask. When I was there, a jackhammer was in use 30ft from my room (working on the pools) midday for the whole week. Their response to my complaint was, "This is not a retreat. It is a motel."
Also, they are across the street from an apartment building with tenants who fight often and can be heard clearly and plainly verbally abusing their children. When I expressed concern and thought I had heard physical abuse, Karl and Ursula told me not to say anything. They were afraid of retribution. They said that the children didn't need intervention, "karma" would take care of the situation. Not all the rooms at Swiss Health Resort can hear the people in this apartment building. However, once I knew, simply knowing the abuse was taking place was too disturbing and I could no longer stay there.
The water is very nice. Although it is sometimes listed as a place that does not use chlorine, they do. There is enough flow-through in the body temperature pool that the chlorine tends to dissipate a while after application. The hot tub does not use fresh hot water. It must be drained and refilled which they do not do often, so they chlorinate the re-used water.
If you are concerned about peace and quiet or the use of chlorine, be sure to ask very specific questions before going there.
My wife and I have been going to Swiss Health Resort for 10 years. Our last trip was in May 07 and it always amazes us at how Karl and Ursula, the owners are always improving the place. The last improvements are a Meditation chapel and an outdoor restroom for day Spa users. I love this place because you always get the feeling that you have the entire place by yourself, even though there may be ten cars parked out front. The prices are always affordable for what you get and remain so.
Do yourself a favor and spend a few days a this Desert Treasure! You won't be disappointed.
The grounds are beautiful. The pool and mineral spas are clean with fress mineral well water. A daily hike with the owners in the morning is a wonderful start to your day. The rooms are sparkling clean with fully equiped (also clean) kitchens. Don't miss this.
