Our air-conditioner didn't cool the room at all, the internet connection was pathetic and appeared to be cancelled o turned off... More

We had a bad experience here, which was made worse by the poor customer service. We were there for a wedding, in which most guests were staying at the hotel. The pros: beautiful setting, and the breakfast is excellent. However, the air conditioning was not working in most rooms. They gave us a discount for that problem, but it definitely... More

Although the rooms were comfortable and the pool beautiful. To make it really worth it the whole organisation needs a shake up and make to an effort. None of the advertised activities actually happened. And staff say yes to everything even if they don't know the answer.

Pick which reviews to read about this hotel carefully as there are two distinct groups of people who use it being either longer term holiday makers (7-14 days) or short term users either on a day pass or 2-3 day breaks.
