A visit to Spa Lilliana is a must when you stay at this hotel! No one has ever been able to work out this knot that I have in my back but Cindy did, and eliminated so much pain. You deserve to splurge ! And I would definitely ask for Cindy.

First and foremast, we have not had a family vacation in a couple years. Overall I was very impressed with the service and accommodations at Hotel Effie. There are a few people that I wanted to give the highest regards too as far as the staff at the hotel: I will have to give 5 stars plus to: 1. Bruce. Bell Hop and service What an amazing man and hard worker. He went above and beyond to make sure that everything we did was easy as it could be and constantly ask what we needed to make it better! I can’t express my gratitude enough. 2. Tanisha. Front Desk Very helpful in all areas at her job. Made sure everything was handled and very respectful. 3. Valet: Brian and Bryson Amazing and always friendly and greeting people with a smile and very responsive. There was also Chase at the rooftop bar and Rafael and Aques the bartenders. Overall was a great stay!

Everything a resort of this caliber should be. Dining was excellent as was the service. Sarah at the spa was a highlight. Strongly recommend this beautiful location. Only downside was the rude shuttle driver but I’m not discounting the review based on her bad day.

Crista the concierge was absolutely amazing! I cannot say enough about how kind and helpful she was during our stay. So many of the staff were so friendly and accommodating! We also loved Gabby at Ovide, Bruce, and Wesley the bartender. They made it such a fun stay for us! We will definitely be back soon!

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Effie for 6 days and had an amazing experience. From the time we walked in the door until the time we left we were treated like family. We made the mistake of not planning where we would store our jet skis. Upon walking in the door, we approached the first person we saw, for help, which was Crista. Not only did she offer an immediate solution she made sure to follow up to ensure we were able to store them. In addition, we had friends that’s were coming to visit, and with limited parking we weren’t sure what to do. Once again, Crista to the rescue. She was like our vacation Angel the entire week. Also, the bellman (I believe his name was Brent) was very helpful and gave great suggestions of things to do. We will definitely be back!
