It is a great place, the landscape and all..........
But forget the "Resort", it is none. The facilities are aged and show wear and tear. Time for a renovations. The solution to call it a "Homestead" is the wrong approach. Sut down one accomodation complex and RENOVATE. Then go to the next one untill you are finished. There is enough money made to do this.
The prices are high, as everywhere in the Centre, North and West where I have been - thats how it is. Far away and transport is expensive.
A kitchen blasting with music you can hear when you walk outside and when you try to enjoy your $$$ meal is not pleasant either.
There are things which could be done to improve without spending too much money, but there has to be the will as well, and this seems to be missing.
If you are only renting this place (as it is written in one of the reviews) get the owners to work with you to improve. There are ways you can get together and make this a better place and maybe then get value for money.
Otherwise it is just a money making place where torists get ripped off because they have no other chance......................
