Good location. Lovely pool. Got a great deal on the price, therefore didn't expect 4star. No plates or cutlery in the family room, tiny fridge.

The photos must have been taken 10 years ago. The whole place is completely run down, dirty and lifeless. It didn’t feel safe either for young children. We actually decided to go pay to go and stay somewhere else. 🙁

Staff were great, very friendly and approachable. The property was family friendly and my boys loved the refreshing, clean and clear pool. We were disappointed about the restaurant as we wanted the convenience of meals available in the resort without going out too much. Other than that, we loved the resort and hoping to be back soon.
