Reviewed March 16, 2017 for a stay in August 2016

This is such an amazing place to stay. We were a three family group with seven children looking for a location where we could kick back, relax, do a lot of swimming, cooking and just plain hanging out - this was the perfect place for us. Everything was super clean and organized, the wifi worked perfectly, the pool was perfect....

Management response:

Thanks Doug - we really enjoyed hosting your multi-national gropu and so pleased you had a wonderful time. We look forward to welcoming you all back, sometime soon.
