Great kids facilities, but rooms very tired and in desperate need of an update. Breakfast buffet is way overpriced for what is offered. Wait staff are slow and not very useful. Dinner service not any better. Kids had finished their meal and we had to ask twice for our mains. When they finally came they were cold and tough and inedible (obviously been sitting for a very long time!). Overall extremely disappointing and we won’t be back. The price just doesn’t justify the quality at all.

Rooms are tired and need some TLC. They have spent money on upgrading their pools and entertainment however rooms are in real need of some renovations. Our air conditioner turned itself on and off and sounded like someone was hammering inside our room.

Room was tidy but showed a lot of wear and tear. Tap dripped and vanity showed cracks where attached. Pool toilet and shower not cleaned enough or different flooring needs to be used. Eg rubber mats.
