Lovely location and staff very friendly. From the concierge, to the bar staff, the spa staff and the restaurant staff, everyone gave a great service.
Location great especially if you like golf. Gusto restaurant was fabulous. Ordered a couples experience which was lovely. Champagne and chocolates on arrival at our room, a private dining experience and a couples massage, we'll worth it and great value for money. Couldn't fault anything.
Special mention to Sandra, she was excellent!

Chose a night at the hotel to break the journey en route to a villa for a family holiday. Pics and description on Expedia gave me no idea of how beautiful and fancy the place is. Gorgeous suite, lovely breakfast, though unfortunately it was too cold out to enjoy the outdoor pool and we couldn't use the indoor one as we have a toddler and children aren't allowed in the spa. Other than that, very clean, sophisticated decor and helpful staff.
I wasn't sure what to expect but the accommodation was very spacious. We had a large sitting room with a terrace just opposite the pool and gym area, a big bedroom, a big bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen. Everything was immaculately clean - it was hard to believe anyone else had ever stayed there before us! I just have two gripes (well - you did ask) and these are that the bed was as hard as a slab of concrete and this combined with very flimsy curtains and a bright street light just outside the bedroom window meant that sleep was hard to come by.
Excellent staff. Helpful and friendly. Rooms are a little dated, but what do you expect for the price.
The rooms and the pool are spotlessly clean. The whole site is very neat and tidy.
The breakfast was good quality for the money with home made cakes and jams every day and freshly baked rolls as pasties every day.

Lovely villa - 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, outdoor space with 4 sun beds and tables, all spotlessly clean, with maid service every day. The villas have everything you need - washing machine, tumble drier, dishwasher etc. All towels are provided, even beach towels. There are both indoor and outdoor pools with plenty of sun beds. The food in the restaurant is excellent as is the food in the bar. The staff are very professional and will go that extra mile for you (e.g. the receptionist managed to get the Waterpark bus detoured so that we could get on it at the main gate instead of several miles up the road!) There is a fantastic beach and nature reserve very close by and this is accessed by a free bus which the resort operates several times a day. The transfer time is short (around half an hour). There is plenty to do within the site itself - my 11 and 12 year old boys played football, table tennis, table football - we ran out of time to have a go at the tennis and the crazy golf across the road. All in all, a relaxing holiday only 2 and a half hours away from London - 23/24 degrees over the half term - away from the main tourist haunts and with an authentic feel - wish we had booked for longer!
