The property was a bit further back from the main stret than we anticipated and there was not enough lounge area for the 7 people in our 3bedroom apartment (only a 2 seater couch and hard floorboards to accommodate everyone). However... the rooms were warm and sunny and bathrooms were modern. Pools were lovely.

Convenient location. Clean. Easy parking. Friendly staff. Only disappointment was the expensive breakfast options. Also not a lot of variety. Only ate there once, ate out after that.

Rooms needed some attention, curtains were broken at tracks and lots of spider webs all over windows including a broken window latch - also a stain on the occasional chair.

i did like the swimming pool/ spa area and the staff were friendly but that was about it. The room was dirty, had cob webs all over the ceiling. The bathroom was very small, my husband was too tall for the shower head. The worst thing about the room was the privacy! We spent nearly $300 for one night on our room and it sounded like our neighbours were sharing the room with us! we had a door locked between us but there was no soundproofing at all so it sounded like their tv was playing right in our bedroom!! I ended up calling reception but as far as i know nothing was done and by 11pm i ended up stuffing tissues in my ears to try drown out the noise!!! was a very unpleasant night away for our honeymoon, i would not recommend this hotel to anyone!! very disappointed.
