Think I'll avail of the $500 a night 'no-tap' package...

In general, high end hotel accommodation has been subject to raging inflation...blame The Bernank...to cite an extreme example, Ritz-Carlton just opened a place in Puerto Rico, hardly the centre of the luxury universe...rack rates start at a farcical $1500 a night. So actually, this place sounds very reasonable for a high-end resort.

Also, in general, it's very rare to have the small luxury hotel / good tennis combo, so Ollinger's heads-up is very welcome.
