The resort is amazing. Was unaware of the deposit i had to leave upon check in but will be refunded a few days after check out. An amazing place to stay with the family.

This resort is fabulous, only improvement could be made is when checking in for the first time, to be shown your room location, around the resort would be helpful. Provide information on the kids club would have been handy also.

Perfect location and place for children. Loved the spaciousness of the units and fully fitted out kitchens. Find it really hard to find fault. .. if we must pick it will be that our ensuite shower could do with an uplift as it was dated. Absolutely loved our holiday!

We had an amazing experience here, we couldn’t recommend this place high enough. We will be returning and we will be bringing our friends and family with us next time.

This was a great place to stay with the kids, lots to keep them entertained. A handy location close to Surfers, the beach and some good places to eat.

Upon arrival first impressions was a let down. Being a returning customer definitely didn't feel welcome as per previous time. Room key was programed to finish 2 days prior to our actual departure. All and all not satisfied with the overall service
