Excellent hotel. Location was good and on-site facilities were good. Range of food was excellent but not as hot as I like it on occasions. All drinks at bars were strong and served speedily. Would choose to return so it must have been good !!

The main restaurant and pool complex were great, the restaurants were both excellent and the staff were brilliant. The rooms were a disappointment, the rooms shown on the web site are in the main hotel block and I assume quite new. The bungalows are older and are in need of an upgrade. When we booked the hotel website said there was a kids pool. This has since been changed and there is no kids pool. This was disappointing as the main pool has no children's area and is not heated, so quite cold for infants.
