When we arrived at the resort we were welcomed by a member of staff who could speak ok English and proceeded to tell us where everything was in the resort, so we were off to a good start. We were taken to our room and are luggage was carried for us so we were pleased.
The rooms were spacious, clean and we'll maintained. We had interconnecting rooms however this had to be sorted out when we arrived as the door connecting the two rooms would not open. So if you are going or thinking about going to the resort be clear on the type of room you want. Another thing I would suggest is ask for a room in the RIF area as it is closer to everything and the walk back and forth to your room is not as far.
The food at the resort was superb. There was plenty of choice even for us as my children are fussy eaters and the setting was pretty, they even made a special effort one night to do a garden party on the golf course. I would say you need to place belongings on your table so people know your sat their and do not arrive for lunch at 12:45pm just after the activities at the pool bed or you WON'T find a seat anywhere!
The staff at the resort were generally polite and tried their vest to understand us however English was an issue for us. Most the staff could only speak French meaning we couldn't do the lessons e.g tennis or golf.
However even without the lessons the activities were great, there was plenty to do. The pool was a bit too cold for us as it was not heated but this meant it was always quite. A downside to the pool area was you had to get up early and put your towels on a sun bed as there was limited seating, so the mornings could be stressful.
Overall it was a nice place, with great food and ok staff. If you have children it is a great place to stay as the kids clubs are amazing. On the whole we really enjoyed are stay.
