The resort was close to the local pub. The resort had a small panel heater in the room and it was freezing when we walked in, I did find a small fan heater in the cupboard which we had to leave on all night, for $200 per night I was not happy !!!

The hotel has so much potential. It was hot very hot and they need some type of air conditioning as for their gardens they need to sack who they have. The garden view apartments you are looking at scrub. Clear it out put in bbq facilities and some entertaining play equipment for kids. Turn this area into a family area. In fact you have the room to create a club med for families.

Lovely stay with a large room. The resort has good facilities. The staff were happy and helpful. Areas for improvement could include; air conditioning in rooms and the gardens fixed up. Our room had a little balcony that looked at an overgrown,weed covered patch. First impressions are everything.
