Cabin was a good size. Didnt like the fact that the pool and restaurant facilities are open to general public. Couldnt use the pool because it was full of locals. There were lots of things broken in cabin, this should have reported by cleaning staff. Had to remind front office several times to arrange cleaning of room and new linen. We stayed for 19 days and our room was

I have a mixed bag of a review. On one hand it met the criteria - central to most places we wanted to visit, enough bedding, tv, air con etc and on the other hand the cabins are dated and run down. There were stains on the walls and the lounge, the sliding doors came off the rails everytime they were used and the air cons in every room leaked. The door to the shower was the same and so there was always water flooding the bathroom. There were ants getting around our room too so we couldn't leave the bin with anything in it when we went out or overnight, even when it was hardly full. We had family members staying in seperate cabins at the same time and their rooms were also run down and in need of some tlc. The restaurant on site use to be great, now the food is bland and very unsatisfying. The staff however were lovely, very accommodating and helpful. The gardens are beautifully maintained and the pool is great. Sadly the cabins are just run down, in desperate need of an update and some maintenance.

Cleaning staff happy and very helpful, the lino on the floor was ripped up with big holes we had no toilet or shower in the room and when we left our room to use the toilet the sliding door locked us out thank god for the cleaners who helped us. Pillows flat and beds are old, bar is under construction and they have limited drinks entertainment is good but they do close very early. Front reception staff seem very busy and the friendliness has left the building.

Hi Colleen, Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback. Very sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with your choice of cabin. Our 'shared-facility' cabins with no en-suite are sold as a budget option for accommodation for those travelling with pets. We are working on sprucing them up a little but their condition should always be functional and friendly - very sorry that you were unaware of this when checking in. Staff around the resort are all available to help resolve any issues that you may have and improve your stay - this can help us help you while you are here, giving us a chance to improve. Happy to hear that our cleaning team was great and helped you in your time of need! I'll discuss your feedback with our reception team and address your concerns. Hopefully, you can come and visit us once our bar is complete and we are back in full swing - although it's not been easy to work around all the tradies, the overall result is for the improvement of our resort and our offering to our guests into the future. Thanks for staying, safe travels.

The resort staff were very welcoming and friendly throughout our stay. Our cabin was beautiful, clean and fresh upon arrival. The tropical gardens and pool area were perfect to unwind and stop by the restaurant for dinner.
