The staff are wonderful very friendly and helpful. The pool is great so relaxing in the morning but gets busy on weekends and afternoons. The on-site bar and restaurant was handy and served up good food. The airport shuttle was handy and on call. The rooms were clean but dated. There is a huge difference in accommodation here we stayed on two occasions this holiday. once in a resort bungalow which was fabulous then we stayed in the standard Queen which although it was very clean and comfortable it was old and felt like a prison cell block. You definitely get what you pay for here. Totally different experiences although both satisfied our needs.

The cafe & entrance/main desk area was very nice & the staff were pleasant. The room was small and lack of room service was irritating

A great hotel for an overnight transit from flights. Smooth and quick courtesy bus both ways, lovely breakfast at the restaurant. Wished we had longer to use the lovely looking pool. Staff were all friendly in every area. Highly recommended.
