I took my mum and son here for my boys 3rd birthday. We had a great time. loved that you could arrive before check-in and get into Seaworld. Had 1 1/2 hour massage which was very relaxing. Will stay here again.

Let me stress that the employees are amazing! The rooms are so old though. Paint peeling off doors, water damage, showers that barely work. I also question why there was a cockroach hanging around the room too. Our friends stayed and didn't have the same items in their minibar in particular those little milk things they give you. Coffee making... More

Our stay at the resort was pretty good. Lots of activities for the children. The restaurant gets quite busy however the quality was average for a buffet. The kids club youngest age unsupervised is 4yrs old, so we weren't quite kid free in the evenings. Sleep in the bed is average at best but the kids loved all the activities... More

The day at Sea World actually made me extremely fatigue. I didn't wan to go back to the hotel near the surfer paradise so I booked here. The room was great with big beds and big tub. We could fully rest in there. But the view was bad, although it's called sea view, we could actually just saw the restaurant,... More
