Staff were all so friendly and amazing, makes the experience so much better! Rooms were lovely and spacious. Pool is great size and well maintained. Food was excellent!! We enjoyed everything we ate at the restaurants. The buffet was full of great options and all the food was really tasty. The restaurant staff were always checking that we were happy with everything and were happy to chat. Our final night saw an Elephant visit for a drink which just topped off our stay. Thank you!
