Trip was planned to celebrate 11 year old's birthday with friends.
As they were pretty busy, we got the garden rooms, to be honest the only difference I could see was that they don't have a bath and are slightly smaller and of course don't overlook the creek, BUT the garden is beautiful with all the water falls and plants etc and there is the plunge pool that the kids spent many an hour in.
Since our last trip there is the new bar which has a gorgeous view over the creek and the upstairs is a kid free (under 16) zone!
Food was enjoyed by all, staff brilliant, the pool and view are to die for and with the water sports offered by 3 degrees (guests are offered a taster of kayaking, windsurfing or sailing) who are very safety aware and RYA certified, what more does one need. The Mums relaxed on the beach while the kids had great fun snorkeling, sailing and kayaking.
Highly recommend if you want somewhere that appeals to the whole family and the kids didn't want anything 'electronic' as they were too busy having fun in the water!
We are going back for half term
