I go every year for water week and enjoy almost all the classes that are offered in the pool. I enjoy going on excursions for bike riding and rock climbing also. The food is excellent, but the rooms are a bit outdated and in need of up grading. Over all the staff is great, especially Sherry, the bingo queen. There...

I completely enjoyed my week at The Oaks. It was akin to Summer Camp, as I haven't laughed like that in years!! It is hard not to laugh when you try to learn how to exercise while hula hooping, or learn to belly dance or play the exercise ball like a drum while dancing! My favorite class was the dance...

We made 2 massage reservations over the phone for a bachelorette party and even provided credit card information. When we showed up, they told us they didn't have any record of our reservations and could not accommodate us at all. The girl at the front desk even said to us that she couldn't help us because she had a migraine....

Hi Jamie and thanks so much for taking time to let us know about the unacceptable incident you had with us. This is far from the experience we want our guests to have and not in keeping with our 39 year reputation. We did have difficulties with your credit card and made many unsuccessful attempts to reach you for verification....

The Oaks offers a broad selection of classes, hikes and activities; well prepared (low-calorie) meals; lovely grounds; and great services like massages and facials. It is the "ultimate" value spa. I'm not sure how many times I've gone there in the past 30 years, but have never been disappointed. If you go alone, it's really easy to meet people if...

This place is amazing, so quiet, so peaceful, so very friendly. It's an all-inclusive spa resort to spend a week -or more- in a healthy environment. Although I was passing for one night only, without having booked, the front desk offered me to stay with a very good rate for the night and in a beautiful room. I highly recommend...

Just visited this spa and I am happy to say it is true to all the great reviews I read. Some initial impressions could have made me think otherwise: gym equipment in a hall, super small accomodations. But, got over the gym equipment, upgraded my room (courtesy of management) and the rest was a delight. Wonderful staff, Katie, in massage,...

This is one great place! Fifteen fitness classes a day, early morning hikes, nightly events and first run movies, incredible meals, and such a feeling of community with other guests and the staff.

The room was small, the bathroom a closet; I have had spa food before that was elegant and lovely but I was extremely disappointed with the meals. They were bland, uninteresting, the fish for example, was overcooked, I was overwhelmed with kale.I will say the staff were lovely but the self promoting "doctor" that gave a seminar was appalling.

I live in LA, so it was only a 1.5 hour drive to meet a girlfriend at the Oaks for the weekend. I had never been before, but was glad for the getaway.

Enjoy the all inclusive program of: Up to 16 exercise classes and fitness activities per day; Our 1,000 calorie-a-day spa cuisine food plan; Massage, facial, watsu, wellness services and more. Interesting evening programs. A visit to The Oaks is more than a spa vacation - it's a life affirming experience.
