    Amazing treatments, gorgeous scenery. We did the hydrotherapy, cocoon wrap and swedish massage in a day package, very relaxing, destressing and detoxing. Quiet and serene, very healthy light lunch. Reccomended!

    Hi Jenny, You've gone to the Hydro a few times. Is there a big difference between standard and basic rooms other than cost? Also, what is the best view to request? Thank you! I'm going for a week in December. Heather

    The basic rooms that I saw recently don't tend to have a patio. Other than that, room still looks very comfortable and the environment is so wonderful, you don't tend to spend that much time in your room anyway

    Is there a big difference between a standard room vs. a basic room for the sake of cost? I will be staying for a week. Also, which views are the best to request?
