I recently stayed here for my daughters bow renewal. When the room was booked it was requested that there be 2 single beds as my son is my carer however, this was not possible as the 'disabled' room doesn't have single beds so he was asked if he could be situated close to my room. When checking in the rooms... More

The resort was very busy on the August bank holiday Sunday - children everywhere. The Brasserie was geared up to serve from a buffet, for holidaying families, and while there were other items on offer... More

I phoned up and booked the Delux Spa Package which included breakfast, light lunch, standard dinner and an hour treatment pp for a Saturday. I also booked an overnight stay for the Friday (non refundable). The day... More

Stayed here with my wife and 4 year old daughter over the weekend with my reward points. So it was nice to get away for free and relax. The swimming pool was great for my daughter - floats provide and a nice shallow end sloping gently to deeper - brilliant for a learner. The hotel over all was clean and... More

The resort located in a beautiful place where every thing is green. A lot of golf courses. The health care center and SPA is up to standard. The food are tasty and nice. The reception staff are not friendly and no smile at all.
