We actually booked this room for November, but after staying at CSS in a Penthouse suite, we decided that the extra money was not worth it, for us anyway, for the following reasons: The suite is next to at parking lot and alot of in-and-out activity, making it not really all that "private." Secondly, the suite was next to (I believe) a private residence with a dog that we heard barking every time we ventured over to that end of the property. And lastly, the suite was a loooong walk from every thing else in the property.
There is no doubt that the Hibiscus Cottage is a gorgeous suite. We talked to a couple that was upgraded from a penthouse suite to the Hibiscus and they liked it and the only complaint they had was that the hot tub was too hot!
