The reception team were really friendly and helpful. The service at the pool bar was efficient but could be friendlier. The room is a good budget option and was spacious and comfortable. We cooked a few times and had everything needed. The pool was great and food at the bar/restaurant was excellent. Recommended!

Great poolside room

I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the rooms were considering it wasn't one of the most expensive resorts. The room was a great size with lovely furnishings it was good having your own seperate unit rather than being part of a block. Loved having my own outdoor chairs to lay back and relax away from the main pool area and right outside your door on your own deck. Couldn't fault it and poolside really was pool side. The staff were so friendly and helpful and would recommend getting the continental breakfast including if your not wanting to cook. The also have other cooked breakfast at a very reasonable price.
