Mini break

Nice, clean hotel well laid out with lagoon like pools and few hot tubs. Small shopping centre walking distance but you need a car to venture out to beaches or other attractions. Great for families with kids. We went during off peak season and it was great and relaxing but during peak season holidays I would not enjoy it as much. The lap pool is too small, only one lane wide and the hotel restaurant was way overpriced.

Bad service

Really bad service. We had to collect items from reception. Breakfast was disgusting and restaurant staff need training in customer service. This is not a four star hotel but 3. I do not recommend this place for a long stay.

Service appauling

Service at the splash bar very bad. 3 young staff on Friday 16th October. We got no service . When we interrupted them to get some service we get the foul look and rolling eyes. Very immature. Wanted to order lunch. were told lunch closes at 2. Not according to the literature. She walks away. Another staff member comes along and asks if she can help. meanwhile the 3 bar staff doing nothing. Have a snack menu. thats good. Who will take our order. No one. Had to interrupt them again. More foul looks more eye rolls. Finally got a snack, still waiting for my glass of water. But service not their thing. Need to be reminded that they are there to provide a service. As a business owner myself these three staff would be fired. Poor ambassadors for the Hotel.Bad start to a night away. Breakfast next morning. What can I say. Nothing left in the buffet except sausages. No Bread no cereal no food. NO STAFF. 2 poor staff members trying to cater for a large number of people. It too over 30 minutes to get something to eat. Another person who was not doing there job very well. 10am check out. Your rules. one staff member on the desk a dozen people waiting to check out. Poor, poor staff allocation. Staff member doing her best but frayed tempers by guests at the long wait. I think management need to pick up their game. I will not be back

Weekend away

Went for a weekend away in August with my partner. Good location allowing to see few places worth seeing. Nice hotel and staff. Quiet and relaxing stay as it was outside of the season but not sure the experience would be the same had we gone during peak season. The gym and lap pool are too small - barely for 2 people but the Jacuzzi pools were ok. Good for families with children.

Lovely quiet romantic winter getaway

The room was comfortable, the tennis court was in good condition, too cold to swim. The breakfast was very good. Venue a drive away from anything. My recommendation would be to have quality tea bags and coffee bags, and an option to get a small carton of fresh milk to start the stay instead of UHT. And a shower cap for the girls when the option is only a shower. Great to have cooking facilies if staying for longer than one night. Thanks for the stay

Anniversary Weekend Gateaway

Booked a room that turned out to be a studio which I wasn't aware of. Talked to the staff about our Anniversary trip and if we could get an upgrade to a room next to the water. The super friendly staff then upgraded our room to a 1 bedroom apartment unit with proper kitchen, dining, living, bedroom with walkin wardrobe and also a jacuzzi!

Would go again!!

I loved the hotel, the location was great. Loved the fact that the pool was all around the resort. Close to the shops. Decent sized rooms. Restaurant staff were very nice, reception stuff not so much. I would still go again.

easter vacation

Disappointed with location of room. Could not have shutters open as it was opposite gym and people and cars constantly going by and it was noisey. I felt there was no privacy. Told there would be no room service and was annoyed that room had been entered when told no service though did get clean towels on first day but nothing else!. Should not give out written advice re room service if it was not correct.. Also felt that there should have been full service considering cost of room for three nights.Would recommend but only request room pool side.
