Great views over the golf course. Sunrise very pretty. Heated swimming pool, spa, & sauna. Pizzas looked good but order before 4pm or not available. Meals from the adjoining resteraunt really good but again best to reserve a table even in the middle of winter. Good place to explore the area.

The resort had lots of activities for our three children to enjoy - especially the pool/spa area. I found the resort very child friendly and the restaurant served great meals.

Nice view of golf course

Pros: View of golf course. Value for money. Bistro. Dragster bicycles!
Cons: Needs a refurb/refresh. Toilet ran. Sheets bally.
Good location. Nice meal at bistro. Cool dragster bikes available for free! Room OK. Toilet ran constantly and sheets "bally" but otherwise good. Whole complex looks a little tired and needs a refurb. Most of staff friendly and helpful. Kitchen staff very helpful with function we had there! Recommended.

Clean and spacious

We thoroughly enjoyed our two day stay. First night in 2 bedroom apartment we had 6 adults and a baby. Cot was arranged and high chair also offered which was handy. The room with a single bunk and a single bed had so much floor space we could have fitted another rollaway bed and not used the sofa bed at all (in retrospect). Great to have the facilities of the bistro and pools so close and lovely having windows and outdoor space looking over the golf course. Not as private or safe for toddler as a balcony (we were downstairs) but much more roomy.. The one negative would be that the walls between the units are not sound proof. From our bedrooms we could pretty much hear every word of the people in the adjoining apartment.. fortunately they didn't stay up too much later and we had an end apartment so only an issue on one side.
