Visited last September and stayed in what's advertised as a lodge, which is actually a brick build chalet, hot tub cold first night and did not get up to temp until the last night (despite contacting reception twice). Accommodation is not modern or clean, although does have all you'll need for a home from home. Bed broken first night, and freezer was broken but both rectified next day. Second visit last week, and went for a standard villa, which was filthy. Dust everywhere, light fillings covered in cobwebs, I won't even mention the toilet brush but you see where this is going!! The beds were not made on arrival and on making beds noticed the pillows were old, stained and bobbly, and the bedding, whilst clean was stained. Complained to reception that we were missing a duvet cover, 30 mins later 2 workers arrived with 1. The facilities are slightly better, the pool and changing area clean and tidy though the pool is highly chlorinated and is not the advertised 25meters! The cafe, ok, all tables sticky and usually full of the sports centre clientele. Staff friendly enough, but too be honest they seem to be coping with very limited resources whilst trying to compete with better parks...
