We had a ground floor pool entrance two bed apartment for me and two kids, I have to say the place was cavernous.. I think it was as large as my house! Fixtures and fittings for fantastic, like a show home. I was very impressed with it. Super clean and really well appointed. The managers were super friendly & helpful, very knowledgeable of the area and happy to answer any questions, even down to restaurant reviews & activity options for kids. Place had a massive, very clean, safe pool which was a hit with the kids also. I dont think there was anything I didn't like really, if i had to pick the only down was no restaurant in house but the hotel right next door did breakfast really cheap & really nice so I didn't care at all, no drawback really. Planning on holidaying in Hervey again so we will be back at the hotel again for sure, probably requesting the same room to. Thanks Akama Resort, loved it.
