5 out of 5
The setting and environment were so relaxing even though you could still do plenty that was invigorating if you wanted to. The only thing they should look into is the constant loop of music that was playing over the sound system. You could almost set your watch by it. I felt like a retail worker listening to a constant loop of Christmas music during the holidays. It get old very quickly.
