This resort is over priced and over rated and during our stay many facilities were barely open.
The visit started poorly when we pulled up to be told by the parking staff that if we chose to self park rather than have valet parking, the parking was 20 mins away - this turned out to be not quite true but was not a good start.
We were given a room in lodge 10 which was OK but tired and ready for a refurb. When I opened the shutters I was facing a construction site with a row of workers sat on the roof with a direct view into the room.
The spa was not fully open and operating from one of the lodges. Only one restaurant was open and was on a very short menu. The food was excessively slow in coming and not very good. We found out the main kitchen was not open either! Neither was the bar - this was relocated to a temporary outside bar that didn't even attempt to produce the drinks as they should be - not bothering to fetch ice or the proper glasses for a cocktail costing $11.
The answer to all our complaints? It was slow season, they were refurbing - it would be great in 4 months time!!
The really bad thing was that all the staff seemed to realise it was very poor but the management were not bothering to do anything about it.
Our advice would be to play the golf courses - they're good but very expensive - but not to bother staying there. Maybe in 4 months time it will be better, but do they deserve the custom with an attitude like that? We don't think so.
