Great value large accommodation complex. The facilities are not new but they are well thought-out and there is a lot to keep the kids occupied. I would easily stay here again.

Very large and comfortable room with a fantastic bed and bathroom. Nice private outdoor area off the bedroom. Staff were very pleasant and eager to please. Nothing was too much for them. Pizza shop and cafe on site at reasonable prices. Pools well maintained. Just needed Elvis to turn up fot Blue Hawaii. Will be back again next year.

Watching the families spending time in the pools letting their hair down was nice. Hotel has a great family feel. The main pool and the bar area is very inviting and accommodating. We had a great time.

Lovely resort if you looking for a family location with all the bells and whistles on a budget. Abit removed from the city action, though this would suite many.

Food was fantastic in the restaurant. The grounds were well kept and the gardens are just beautiful. Staff were all very friendly and we were given lots of details on arrival which was good. The only thing we did not like was the shower. It was absolutely terrible! Need new shower heads for sure. We had to move around in circles to try and get the water to hit us and even when it did we couldn't wash the soap off because it sprayed everywhere but your body.

We moved our accommodation to this place because we ended up in a dodgy part of town. It was such a welcome relief. We felt safe, the gardens were absolutely beautiful and refreshing. Inside was modern and clean. They also had decaf coffee for those breastfeeding mums. This place was a real pleasant suprise. Would highly recommend for anyone.

Great pools which need re lining as the pebbles are coming away from the cement. The bar in the back pool was closed which was disappointing. The sink , shower and toilet in our room all continually drip and leak. Mentioned this to management but nothing was done. Ceiling fans around back seating area of the main bar don’t work. This place has great potential but just needs some maintenance
