This resort is overdue for a major renovation. The food in the cafe and restaurant is not fantastic and the crowds during the school holiday period are off-putting (there were never fewer than 60 people in the spa or swimming pool at any given time). On the plus side, the waterslides are great entertainment for the kids and the proximity of the resort to the beach, shops and restaurants is very appealing.

Wonderful place to take the kids and plenty for them to take part in. However the facilities provided in the room were well below expectations and did not include what I would consider the barest of basics. The room was a very go oid size.

Excellent staff, accommodation facilities are a little dated (balcony rail wobbly). General use toilets in the lobby weren't modern and smelly. Air conditioner in the laundry drips on you while waiting for washing. Food is excellent, had pizza every day. Kids are continually engaged with activities in and out of the pool and waterpark. Waterpark is amazing. Been here 3 times over the past 7 years and never disappoints. Just don't expect top value accommodation.

The hotel is old and needs a complete Reno and updated. The carpet in our room was almost nonexistent in some areas it was so worn. The bar was ridiculously under staffed. Prices for food and drink were well overpriced. Our child liked the water play area.

Friendly staff and great facilities for the little ones. Unfortunately, rooms are in desperate need of attention and require a well needed renovation.

We were able to be upgraded to a larger room on the spot which was great and the reception staff were extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. The splash park was wonderful for the kids, but the pool is small so when its holiday season its just too crowded. the kids zone is excellent and you have a grwat deal of entertainment for the little ones outside waterplay. lazer tag was a hit and the staff again very good. My biggest recommendation however if you are on a budget is to have breakfast outside the resort. We were charged $91 for4 standard breakfast dishes off the menu for 2 kids and 2 adults which was more than we paid for dinner the night before. Breakfast meals were ordinary and was served at different times not together and they forgot drinks. Overall however great resort for families with young kids and reception staff are wonderful.
