Enjoyed the stay and theme park despite renovations. The theme park was amazing for the whole family. Not many halaal options though. Overall worth it. The breakfast was a bit bland and limited for my taste and dietary requirements.

Excellent Experience. Room - Spacious, Comfortable, fully equipped. Excellent breakfast. Chose dinner at Back of the Moon - Perfect setup and meals to compliment our Wedding anniversary . They even dedicated a song to us. Logistics - Smooth check in and check out. Documents were already prepared and waiting for us by extremely friendly staff. Total Pleasure.

I would like to express my total dissatisfaction when I visited the Theme Park and was under the impression that I would receive 4 tickets. I only receive 2 tickets and had to pay for the 2 other tickets. You need to get more efficient staff at the Theme Park Guest Services booth and a serious attitude problem! We entered... More

We stayed her in April with 2 young kids. It was excellent and we couldn't fault the service of the staff. A special mention must go to Lundig?? at reception, whose service was absolutely brilliant!!!
