          Great family holiday! There was something to do for everyone from toddlers to retired persons. We had beautiful weather considering it was mid winter, definitely warmer than Johannesburg! The entertainment staff were fabulous as in fact were all the staff. All rooms sea facing :)

          Is there a stove in the 4 sleeper units? I was told that there is by the person who sold me the timeshare week but reviews on here are saying there isn't. Please clarify
