This was our second visit and it did not disappoint. We booked a twin with 2 queen beds and it was perfect for myself and 3 kids (5, 4 & 9 months). Firstly they had allocated a room with shower only, but after requesting one with a bathtub, they moved us within minutes! Staff are so friendly and helpful, Bryan... More
