The large swimming pool with lots of natural shade and greenery in the surrounding areas was a great area to relax and chill. The service all through... More

This place is average, five star money for average accommodation, service and food. the pool is nice but could do with a shallow end for the kids and could be a bit bigger for the size of the hotel. Took ages to get a bed in the room for our daughter, rooms too small for 3 but after a few... More

We have been in this hotel for just over 48 hours. However I feel the need to write a review as I have seen some not great reviews and wanted to let anyone planning to come soon that you will NOT be disappointed.

Our daughter is very happy staying here. The rooms have all been renovated to neutral colours which are very nice. She said the pillows are amazing and slept like a log. The only fault she can find is the bar area it is souless and they could do with some modern entertainment which would attract more people. The pool area... More
