No pool or hot tub.

Some vacation cottages lacking in amenities.

While many visitors enjoy a comfortable stay at the resort, some guests opting to stay in a vacation cottage are disappointed by the included amenities. Previous guests have reported that cottage kitchens are not always well-stocked, missing important kitchenware items, linens and other amenities.

Bar noise disturbs nearby rooms.

Guests looking to settle in for an early night may find their sleep disturbed if their room is located near the hotel bar.
