Well we were only stopping here for a few days on our way back for the UK. We were really looking forward to a few days of relaxation before heading home, and on the whole we go that.
The room was clean and tidy, if a little tired in places. Our only compaint was that the TV remote didn't work well and required an adapted cellotaped to the face of the telly.
The complex was well groomed, the gardeners were out regularly. The pathways were poorly maintained though, several of the pavers were wobbly or chipped making it hazardous for toddling children.
The pool was lovely, alot of our time was spent around there. There was plenty of beds available, although the resort was quiet.
Our only real issue with the place was the rude staff and cost of food. The food was very average and was excessively priced for a supposed 5* resort. Surprisingly it was cheaper to order room service than eat in a restaurants!! $34 for breakfast seemed alot, and $25 for a small portion of fish and chips wasn't exactly value for money. Wine was also pricey. We paid $59 for an average bottle of wine which we saw in the supermarket for $15 on our return to NZ. It did make me think that the prey on the tourists.
We found there was two types of staff at the resort, the really friendly ones who will go out of their way for you (and actually earn the tip) or the ones that simply demand it for nothing!!
Now I have no problem tipping helpful and friendly staff members but we had one experience at the main restaurant where the lady taking our room numbers (not the one actually serving us our meals!!) asked, in an abrupt manner, for a tip when we were leaving the venue! She wasn't in the minority either, alot of the staff had her attitude.
On the whole I doubt we would go back, even tho we liked the area and facitlies.
