Positive Reviews

Gorgeous grounds enable guests to relax

One of the most often reported highlights of this resort is its beautiful grounds. Complete with lush greenery, spacious lawns and gardens, and a sparkling pool, the grounds are said to offer guests a chance to truly relax and enjoy their surroundings.

Good choice for families with young kids

Guests find this resort a particularly good choice when travelling with younger children. According to reviews, wide open spaces, swimming, and play areas mean there’s plenty to keep them entertained. The staff, meanwhile, seem especially welcoming to little visitors.

Spacious suites offer an authentic touch

The suites here generally attract positive feedback from guests, with many particularly impressed by their size, as well as by the air of authenticity lent by the traditional artwork and antique wooden furniture. The hammam-style tubs in the bathrooms also receive special praise.

Negative Reviews

Maintenance could be much improved

Overall, guests are unimpressed by the standard of maintenance visible throughout the property, both in the individual suites and around the resort. Travellers feel that the whole place would benefit greatly from extra attention by the maintenance staff.

Bicycle rental costs extra

Considering the size of the grounds and the distance of the resort to area attractions and amenities, guests are a little disappointed to find themselves paying extra to use a bike. This is especially an issue for newcomers who are not even planning to leave the resort.

Lack of on-site activities disappoints

Although younger kids appear to have a great time here, the lack of organised activities can leave older children and some adults, feeling rather bored. The focus appears to be on the albeit excellent spa treatments, but these, of course, cost extra and are not to everyone’s taste.
