We stayed at this property for one night. Our 2 bedroom villa was not ready until 3pm and when we arrived we were greeted with bags of dirty linen outside the door. The bedroom configuration was strange with the children's room quite separate (including own keys) to ours. There was no mini bar, poorly stocked tea/coffee supplies, and same for the bathroom - shampoo but no conditioner. We chose to eat at the on site restaurant in the evening. Again, disappointing. Clearly understaffed. The "pork belly" was in fact pork with bacon wrapped around it. The lamb rump was fatty. The meals were over $30 each for the privilege. The bar area adjacent to the restaurant was littered with empty bottles some time after the group that had occupied the area had left. No free Wifi and the purchased high speed internet was nothing of the sort.
