I did not recieve what i booked! The manager laughed at me when i tried to show her the email stating i have a VIP room booked. Pretty much said thats what i get for booking via a third party and not directly with the property.

There was plenty of equipment for the kids and a huge pool although it was filthy. The room was dirty and poorly equipped. The entire property was run down and in disrepair with old cars around and over flowing dumpsters. There was a toaster but no plates or knives. The beds were very comfortable.

The property is really nice and clean and location is very picturesque. The rooms were great for the price. When booked it showed breakfast included. The property mentioned it is never provided over the phone. The receptionist said it was only included when booked through them directly. The property was nice but this was a bit of a let down.

The continental breakfast was lovely and is a must! The area of the pool and play equipment for children is great! Wifi is only accessible around the pool area and limited to no phone reception.

The room was clean and comfortable. We had to run the shower for five minutes for the water to heat up. The children’s play equipment is set in lumps of concrete and has no soft fall material below it, creating a serious hazard for any children who fall. The pool needs a coat of paint. The gardens and grounds look old and tired. We did not see the restaurant open at all during our 5 night stay. A comfortable place to sleep, but not really a resort.
