I've been staying at this hotel more than 3 times. Value for your money. Room was comfy and clean. The room design quite special, upstair in bedroom. Staff very good. Check in fast and hassle free. The ambience of the resort very relaxing with close to the beach.

Spacious room for suit with 4 bedroom type with isolated TV and relax area with sofa in the centre of the room , nice beach & water theme park. It is suitable for family with kids as they have water park over there. Suggest to come along with more friends or family.

Breakfast tasted ok but spread was abit disappointing. 'water park' was...

The rooms at this resort were clean! Although the design and look of the room are outdated, I still like the fact that it has a studio apartment which allows us to walk up to our bed room. The size was good, not as small as we thought it would be. Food is expensive, mainly because it's a resort and...

The hotel is busy over weekends and full during the week with workers from the large construction projects in the area.

Easy to find. Too huge. Parking problem. Try very hard to park near the block we stayed. Overcrowded during breakfast especially during school holiday. The only thing nice is the big pool with slides. Kids enjoyed it.
