Lovely resort and facilities. Kids loved the pools. Clean and spacious villas. A little more attention to small things (we were only given one key which was to the laundry door at the side, light bulb not working in master bedroom etc) would bring it up.

The grounds are lovely. The units could do with some upgrading-particularly the bathrooms and the noisy plumbing. Asked for a queen and two singles. Singles were made up as a queen bed.

Each terrace appears to be individually owned by investors, so it’s hard to make a sweeping statement here. Our terrace was tired and musty, it appeared like the owner had put little to no effort in keeping it from falling apart. but it was clean, a lot of the other terraces had new blinds and well considered furniture, ours clearly hadn’t been updated since it was originally furnished. The resort itself was excellent and well maintained. The service we received was very good. I’d definitely go back, just maybe not in the unit we stayed in before

Hi Kat & Ant - thanks for your recent stay with us and feedback. This is indeed the case and we are working very hard with all of those owners who need to have some work done to do so. We have a roll out plan in place for this year and when you do return you will notice this. We look forward to welcoming you back to the resort soon.

Hi Sarah - thanks for your feedback. We feel that this comment is very harsh and unjust. The resort has had some major changes prior to the Christmas break as we thought it would be nice for our guests in the high season to not be in renovation mess. We will continue to roll these exciting plans out in 2019.
