I returned to this hotel having stayed there many years ago, and loving It. It appears to have changed ownership, but a lot more has changed unfortunately. The Rainforest style of the gardens and the truly unusual pools are still the most attractive I have ever seen, and I still appreciated and enjoyed this part of the hotel. However the... More

Tropical gardens create privacy as you walk around on your way to the various pools and the homestead restaurant. The cafe bar near the pool has updated their furniture since I was there last. However, because it's near a pool area, the soda water and beers are served in plastic glasses, which change the taste. Better option is to buy... More

I stayed here for one night and arrived around 9pm and left at 7am so can only give a limited review. The location for me was ideal for my work trip. It's close to the airport but not right in town. It's a large hotel with plenty of parking and was easy to find. Reception staff were very friendly and... More

I stayed here in the early 90s when it first opened. It was stylish back then. Today it is a little worn, but it remains very good value for money if you are looking for somewhere to crash after a big day sight-seeing. The pool is still good, and it was nice to catch some sunshine during the mild winter... More

We were greeted by an extremely friendly receptionist who gave us loads of information about what to do in the area. In fact, reception were excellent all week and were our only real highlight here.... More

Me and my family had a pleasant 4 nights stay in this hotel. Hospitality is to be appreciated especially Haiden (From New Zealand) and Karina. The resort is very huge. Rooms are old and bit outdated but value for money you get what you pay for. Green areas kept very maintained and so the pools. Restaurant is not so good... More

Stayed for a night in August. This places needs a serious makeover. Carpark has crater like pot holes, huge. We went looking for the spa that was on the welcome map they gave us, after 30mins in the dark we rang to ask where it was to be told they don't have a spa and haven't had for quite some... More
