This is a budget resort so don't expect any extras! It is just a bit tired. That being said, if you are looking for cheap accommodation then give this resort a go. We have just had four days there and the rooms were clean and the microwave, fridge, TV etc. seemed quite new. The bed linen was spotless, the towels... More

When we arrived the reception was less than reasonable. After checking in and proceeded to room to find that there were no hangers in the wardrobe and the state of cleanliness of the room was less than poor. Dirty bathroom, windows that looked like they have not been cleaned for months or years.

After reading prior reviews was tempted to cancel. However as only staying one night and as it was considerably cheaper than others went ahead with trepidation expecting at least an interesting experience. Unit with spacious bedroom, large kitchenette and dining and spacious bathroom. All clean and tidy and everything worked.Undercover parking and good size pool as well as spa pool.Yep... More

The premises were not up to standard, the furniture was damaged and very stained kitchen cupboard hanging off the hinges, smoke alarm hanging loose from the ceiling. A swimming pool and half tennis court, does not constitute calling it a resort in this day and age. What made it bearable that the staff were nice and friendly.

Resort is a bit of an overstatement, cheap motel with limited facilities is a better description. Latch lock on door has been jimmied off, very strong smell of chlorine &bleach in bathroom and the worst bed I've ever slept in. I could feel every spring. Would not recommend for single female traveller, as it does not feel safe and feels... More
