The setting is superb, the facilities should be mouth-watering (biking, boules, walking, tennis, indoor games, BBQs, and all sorts of boating) but our few days there were somewhat marred by a few mishaps.
The gated entry needs to be a little more user friendly - both on the first visit and when finally leaving. We had no warning that the system was in place & requires an electronic fob to activate the gates: this left a convoy of three cars stuck outside as the roadside phone wasn't being answered. Sounds petty but it grated after a long drive to get there.
The apartments we hired were on the top floor and we had trouble with the keys. Some worked but others didn't and this took time to work out. Some other things that didn't work included the dishwasher, a bedside lamp and the kitchen clock...all insignificant and all easily rectified BUT they could so easily have been checked.
We were very pleased with the beds, the kitchen and the lounge. The television worked well - as did the sound system and the dining facilities alongside the well equipped kitchen were ideal for our large family gathering. We missed being able to open the windows and would have appreciated some operating instructions for the TV, dishwasher & cooker...but we muddled through.
More attentive management would have made this a superb review, and helped us to explore the area.
