It is great to hear you had a wonderful time. Any additional details you might be willing to provide to me regarding the associates who "seemed irritated" would be helpful to me.

Honestly, just awful. You are warned. Don’t think twice. I complained and they offered 15% off. I said that is an insult. On my way out, another patron heard me complain to my wife and she said, “I had an awful massage yesterday as well.”...More

no pool or beach but just a short ride away is a beautiful beach full of sun worshippers, dogs and not too many seashells. Maine water is a bit cold but it sure does refresh.
