The best feature and my all time favorite is the large well designed main relaxation pool, plunge spa and swim up pool bar. Lots of pool seating available. You can relax, munch and drink by the pool.
The 1 bedroom apartment room and furnishings were all very new, modern, spacious and clean.
The garden view room and surrounds were very quiet and peaceful.
The bed and pillows were very comfortable. So quiet, slept through without using any earplugs.
Very family friendly - plenty of room for cots and for kids to run around.
I ordered both room and pool service and the food was very delicious and yummy.
Hotel provides free bike rental. There is also a large quiet lap pool and small gym next to tennis courts and a snooker table.
Staff were mostly very helpful, personable and friendly...though it does depends on who you got and what time of day.
Location is out of town but local shuttle buses come right up to the lobby.
$5 for 1 way. Get a multi-day pass, it will work out cheaper. I went with Sun Palm bus company which had great service. 5 mins drive by car.
In town, there's a large Coles, Target and juice bar front of Target which had a very refreshing Lemon Twist mix.
No major bad points worth mentioning. Just a note that King size consists of 2 twins.
Overall, it was an excellent 6 nights experience. I would recommend it and would stay there again.
