Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness
The location of the resort was excellent. Our room overlooked the driving range. There was a lot of nature to enjoy from our room, which was lovely. However, I do have problems with privacy with rooms. The blinds for the kitchen window is not fully opaque. This means that any relatively tall person can peek into the entire kitchen and living room from the outside. This is worse in the evenings when the lights are on. We were uncomfortable lounging in the living room due to the lack of privacy offered by the kitchen blinds.
