Before we booked the room we read the write up that we would be staying on an upper floor with panoramic views..so we booked it...but our excitement quickly turned to dissapointment on arrival...we got a room next to reception ( ground floor) ...there was slamming doors all night ... and the view from the ground floor was a big dissapointment (grass views!), the room had a musky cigarette smell to it..
If you are going to stay here make sure if you expect nice views or a nice outlook you ask for a room with a balcony that overlooks the pool..! Or a top floor room in the brand new wing. The rooms that back directly onto the carpark driveway, have cars driving past only a few metres from the door ( no privacy there!), unless you get a top floor room, then they are o.k..
If you have children, ask for a room with a balcony that overlooks the pool area..
Has a nice pool and restaurant.
