We stayed here for two weeks and had a great time. We had two adjoining rooms and they were clean and comfortable. We paid for premium wi-fi which my 2 teenagers appreciated! The staff were generally very helpful; always keen to assist. The food was excellent and the themed restaurants were good too. I was disappointed that the steak restaurant... More

This place is mediocre at best. It's well maintained, clean and most of the time there is service with a smile. It is however nothing out of the ordinary. The food is ok and plentiful, drinks ok, entertainment ok. The thing to expect is regular power cuts. It kicks back in quite quickly but it is near daily. All in... More
