This so called resort is a motel located on the upper level of a shopping centre .Very poor parking and non existent help from the staff. The only thing they have going for them is that it is located in the middle of town.There was not shampoo etc provided and the bedding were very very uncomfortable with the pillows squeaking... More

Not a pleasant experience, below basic standard with no standard extras in the room. A toaster but no plates or knives. Clean towels left on filthy bedspreads. No hairdryer, not even a box of tissues. Cheap & nasty coffee / tea. Old lumpy pillows with plastic covers and noisy ceiling fan. About one step up from camping. But to be... More

A different experience for sure. A myriad of rooms intertwined with cafés, restaurants and markets on the weekends. Italian inspired and each row of rooms off a different Via. We have a door on each side opening out into a courtyard overlooking similar below. Rooms are brick walled, clean and decor a little worldly but just right for the feel... More

The worst hotel experience of my entire life! Rude staff, broken fixtures, dirty rooms complete with last occupant's hair on the floor & in the bathroom drains! Our room smelt like someone else's take away. Couldn't wait to leave.

We booked the family room (huge with kitchen, lounge, bedroom but the world's smallest bathroom!) with 2 granddaughters for the "Rock and Roll" extravaganza weekend. The girls showed little interest in what was our era but we enjoyed the shows with too many Elvises! The markets were a different story for the girls as the little market shops are quaint... More

What an interesting and beautiful holiday Resort. So much to see and do, markets, a scrumptious variety of restaurants, Movies. The detail in the architecture is amazing. Everything you need is there to enjoy a special weekend away or holiday. Walking distance to everything. Warm and friendly staff- Thank you. Highly recommended.

We loved the entire Mediterranean theme. We first had our honeymoon here ten years ago, thus time for out tenth anniversary. The love that has gone into every beautiful attention to detail in this facility, I've seen nowhere else locally. There is so much to see and do, many cafes, restaurants and bars, again with attention to detail in the... More

I live close to the resort so at busy social times of the year when I have more family and friends than beds, we arrange for our extra people to stay at the resort. This was the case again this year and as usual our guests were very happy with the rooms, surrounding facilities and the very caring and helpful... More
