Arriving at 10pm the only negative of the holiday was finding the bungalow (1107) this was clean and spacious. We hired a kettle for early mornings and late afternoons on our own patio. The staff work very hard to answer questions and give directions. Special mention to Ana (with one n) on reception. The animation team are cheerful and work... More

My partner and I arrived At 9pm Tuesday 16th September. Reception was busy and only one person on duty. He did his best but I thought there should've been more staff. Once checked in we were given a map with directions to our bungalow. We made our way, with luggage to find the bungalow. It was extremely dark & thankfully... More

We are home a week and had a great time. Having read the trip advisor reviews before leaving I was really nervous about my choice but was proven very quickly that there was no need for nerves. We had bungalow 1010 which is at the road side of the complex near the back gate. The bungalow was extremely spacious and... More

Our holiday was ok and our children enjoyed it (which is the main thing) but I would not recommend this hotel. As a family of 5 it cost us an absolute fortune for 1 week here in August, if it had been 4* the price may be justified but I feel a big hole in my pocket now. The entertainment... More

Mixed reviews on Trip Advisor but thought I'd try it and I'm glad I did and we went as 2 families with young teenagers. The check in was quick and food was being served till 21.30 so managed to get something to eat and it was tasty. The Bungalow rooms are spacious, bedroom, built in wardrobes, drawers, dressing table, bathroom... More

It is a shame to give this hotel such a low rating as it could be a lot better with very little effort. This was not our hotel of choice - it was a replacement hotel. A lot of reviews mentioned the water park. This is not attached to the hotel grounds but is attached to the sister hotel paradise... More

Stayed at the HL end of June and beginning of July and was disappointed with the 4star label. At best this is a 2 and a half or 3 start hotel. The appartments are very dated with furniture at least 20 years old by the looks of it. Bathroom had grout missing in many areas and cobwebs and had seen... More
