Positive Reviews

Excellent Employees

The staff at the resort rated highly across a number of reviews. It seems that the staff are very friendly and accommodating and will go out of their way to ensure that guests have a pleasant time.

Great Family Vacation

Visitors travelling with children had an excellent time and they positively reviewed the resort. Many of these guests really enjoyed the range of activities put on by the entertainment staff who made sure their kids were never stuck for something to do.

Four Big Pools

There are four big connected pools at the resort and for those guests who came to sunbath and relax by the pool this featured prominently across a number of reviews.

Negative Reviews

Crowded on Weekends

The hotels sells locals a day pass to access the resort and the pools on weekends, which for some guests left them a little disappointed that they could not get near the pools or the pool chairs; as there was little to no space when the resort turned into a water-park for locals on the weekend.

Average Food

Some guests thought that the buffet prepared food was a little on the average side with guests commenting that the food could only be described as average at best, with some calling for a wider selection and more variety to cater to a range of tastes.

Needs a Clean Up

A common theme across a number of reviews was the need for hotel management to pay more attention to the clean up of the grounds in and around the resort. Guests also suggested that housekeeping needed to spend a little more time in rooms with many finding evidence of previous guests on check-in such as hair in drains and in beds.
