Dear Guest, Thank you for your great review. It was great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We have addressed the issue of the spa pool today. It's out of order for a couple of days as the thermostat needs to be replaced. We hope to welcome you back at the hotel soon. Kind regards, Justin van Grootveld Hotel Duty Manager
