I stayed in a Riverside Pool view room for 2 nights with my two teen girls in early December. We had a queen bed and 2 singles. The beds were very comfy, and although I am a light sleeper, I had a really good nights sleep. The room was spacious, clean, modern and set among a rectangle block of other pool side rooms around the pool and BBQ area.The room had a big bathroom, kitchenette, dining table and sofa, and a deck with small table and chairs facing the pool.The pool was clean and a good size. It was quiet when we were there midweek but I think it could use a few more than the 4 lounges around the pool at busier times, and could get noisy / feel a bit crowded. I rated the service average because it was unobtrusive - check in was quick and effortless, and I saw maintenance man doing some odd jobs about the property, but otherwise had little contact with the staff. Our only problems were a slow draining bathroom sink - which we reported as we departed (probable partial blockage)- and while I liked the open shower cubicle it did make the bathroom floor wet not just in front of the shower but across to the toilet too. These were minor issues in my view, as we had a really relaxing few days in a great location and in accommodation that was great value for money - we purchased at a discount rate on lastminute.com My girls, 14 & 17, loved it. Its alos close to the beach and the shops - a few blocks to each, maybe 10 minute walk. There is a nice little cafe for breakfast or light meals / snacks next door, and a petrol station next to the cafe.
