Loved the variety of activities available for families. Could not fault the cleanliness and staff. Beds were the only let down, pretty uncomfortable.

The pool facilities were great. The lack of walkways between our room and the pool area not so much. Trekking through the dirt is not fun. Also people being allowed to smoke next to the kids play equipment is not ok. Lack of pool towels was rubbish as was the lack of kids tv channels. Room itself was very old and run down.
