Dear Elana. Thank you for sending me this feedback. It must have been disappointing , to find that our alfresco fresh mineral water hot pool was empty during the day, because it receives fresh hot mineral water every evening as this is the most preferred time for guests to soak and relax. I was glad to hear that your children had a lot of fun in the large swimming pool during the heat of the day and also enjoyed the ropes on the tree swings. Thank you for the suggestions I will be re-painting the seats on the ropes and edges of the concrete pool this season. I am glad you liked the flowers in the Cottage, we always have fresh herbs available for our guests from the garden as well.
