The resort is... More

Got married here in October 2006 - we had an absolutely fantastic time! Upon arrival was a little disappointed with the rooms - they were a little dated and could do with renovation (which I believe the hotel is in the process of doing). But after first day didn't even give it a second thought. We found the staff excellent,... More
