I would like first of all to reply to a couple of criticisms left by other Trip Advisers.
1 Gardens had seen better days? - They must have visited in August at the height of a heat wave? We were there for the Winter solstice and the gardens are an utter delight. The only place in the UK that rivals it are the semi-tropical house at Kew Gardens. The sheer fecundity and outrageous size of the luscious plants - first time I've seen a banana tree in fruit - on December 21st is wonderful.
2 Apartments are shabby? Well perhaps a little BUT the price that we paid reflected this. Remote control CH thoughout, Flat screen TV and bedroom TV, HUGE balcony with sunbeds AND dining table and chairs with parasol(natch) - we needed it the weather was GLORIOUS 70 degrees for 8 straight days with slight rain only at night. A separate kitchen alcove with washing machine (my wife loved having a washing machine), fridge/freezer full cooker. A full bathroom and shower en-suite with a spa bath. A welcome pack with tea, coffee, milk, washing up liquid and soaps and even bubble bath for gawds sake. Maid service twice weekly - they even remove the rubbish.
The Grangefield Oasis(GO) club was a delightful home from home for us for 8 glorious days. Thank you Natalia for making our stay so restful and refreshing.
Now there are a couple of snags? Might be a benefit for others? WiFi was rubbish - there was no signal available in the rooms and although free in the lounge the reception here was not good either. My tip to GO - get a tech company that knows their business the one you have at the moment are well below par.
You need a car and a good up-to-date sat nav. The GO is situated in a rabbits warren of streets with dead-ends and one-way streets which is literally miles away from anywhere.
However despite the drawbacks we paid hostales prices for a lovely suite of rooms with a large balcony with sea views and amazing dawn views.
