Couple things that needed attention: 1. Residue from spill in front of the door into our building. 2. Shower head was partially plugged due to mineral build-up in the nozzles.

Civana is a beautiful resort with a variety of amenities. The property is beautiful and serene. The only issue was the noise in the hotel room. The doors are extremely heavy and would slam shut. The walls are also thin so we could easily hear conversations in surrounding rooms.

It has a very nice gym. Rooms are nice, restaurant was good .. only thing wrong was they fee you 32.75 a day for “experience fee” makes no sense to me. Pissed me off and they won’t refund the money, so watch out for the “final print”

Hi Penny, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do charge a $30 per night (plus tax) Experience Fee (our Resort Fee). This fee covers things such as parking (valet or self), shuttle usage, WiFi, newspaper, water canteens, and access to our classes throughout the day. I am sorry that you were not aware of the fee, but it is mentioned in your booking. We hope to see you again in the future. Have a great day!
