This resort is not pram friendly and if you are not in a ground floor there are no lifts. Adults are but allowed on the slides with their children and the main splash zone would be suitable for kids 8 and up I would say. There’s not a lot of space to sit and watch either. They do do free late checkout until 12 which was handy seeing as we only stayed the one night.

Liked the large pool areas and the fun-park area. I think the cinema and games room could have better signage (such as show hours). The drainage around the pool was very poor with a lot of debris draining into the pool, and water pooling along the edge (southern side) - likely exacerbated by recent heavy rainfall. Room could do with a good carpet shampoo. Restaurant prices were excessive for a family resort

Liked the pools and children friendly place. Disappointed that it is advertised as fully air conditioned but this was incorrect. The security and closeness to everything is great.

Extremely convenient when staying with kids, absolutely amazing water park with pools and slides, Splash Zone and some of the pools adjacent to the resort restaurant which means you can have a drink or meal watching kids playing. Guaranteed that they will make friends there as there are a lot families staying. They run Kids Club which is absolutely great when you need few hours to yourself. Very clean in a neat condition apartment with welcome brekky food provided. It was eggs, milk, bread, juice and half a kilo of bacon for five, so super handy for day one of your stay. Love it love it Will go back. We give them five stars.
