A lovely location, great facilities (especially the heated pool), even for non-golfers, and very friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed the views across to the beach and sea, and the amazing sunsets. The stars at night were awesome too. The units were well set-up, spotlessly clean and with lots of great extras like insect mesh on the doors and windows,... More

Fabulous golf course and resort. Played 18 holes without a cart........ a whole lot of walking! The course is stunning. Fantastic fairways, fast greens and beautiful views. Finished with a swim before dinner in the restaurant. The luxury studio room was extremely nice. Great day and night away. Really friendly staff.

I found the staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious. The Villa we stayed in had a great view over the golf course. I like the face that the free wifi was open and didn't require a password to be entered, that would be because it is a remote area and no one in range to... More

We stayed for a night at the beginning of January. We arrived around 11am but were only able to check in at the standard check in time even though the hotel was deserted which seemed strange. We had to ask what amenities were available on site and when we went to explore the facilities on site the snooker room was... More

The site is great, though I am not a golfer. The personnel at the reception helpful and friendly. Rooms are large and comfortable. But the restaurant experience was simply ..... ridiculous. Never happened that we were given paper napkins, because they had finished the linen ones; never happened that when we asked for some more bread, we were told that... More
