Positive Reviews

Excellent choice of amenities

There’s a good chance you won’t want for anything during your stay here In fact, the presence of two golf courses, two restaurants, a bar and a full-service spa will probably make it hard for you to drag yourself away to explore the surrounding area.

Nice rooms

Guests tend to comment favourably about the rooms at this resort There are also plenty of positive remarks about the bathrooms Guests appreciate that there’s both a bath and a shower and the complimentary toiletries are a nice touch.

Attentive service

Whether commenting on staff at the reception desk, in the spa or in one of the two on-site restaurants, guests often speak highly of the service here. While there are some negative comments, there’s a general consensus that each member of the team wants you to have an enjoyable stay.

Negative Reviews

Disappointing spa

The amount of guests who were disappointed with the standard of the spa indicates that there may be a few issues with this facility Complaints include lack of robes, staff who hardly seem qualified, treatments finishing earlier than they should and a broken Jacuzzi.

Breakfast is hit and miss

While some guests describe the breakfast here as of a high standard, others felt it really let down the resort Reviews indicate that coffee is served from flasks and that some items were served cold It’s a little disappointing and not what you’d expect from a resort.

Different experiences overall

This resort sounds like it should offer an unbeatable stay without fail Unfortunately, guest reviews are mixed at best There seems to be an equal number of negative comments as there are positive, so you have to conclude that quality is less than guaranteed.
