This property was very well looked after and and the amenities were excellent swimming pool, gym, car park and private thermal pools. Rooms had lovely large deck areas. Only thing that was a problem was the noise from the apartment above or next to us, sounding like they were dancing for a fair bit of one late afternoon with blaring music and lots of thumping.

Beautiful facilities, beautiful rooms, absolutely lovely people to deal with. We will definitely stay again. The only thing I would like them to impreove on is the rom servicing. Our beds were made but the room wasn’t vaccumed and we didn’t receive fresh pool towels. But these were only minor things, I definitely recommend staying here.

Dear Leanne, thank you for taking the time to write a review on Expedia. The Housekeeping team have to replace all wet pool towels with fresh ones and they have to vacuum if needed. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I will ensure that we improve the room servicing. Our guests should get that WOW experience after a daily room service. Thank you once again and we are looking forward in seeing you again. Best regards
