Let's state the facts, this is a great resort. Situated on a hill, it is maintained like a golf course in the middle of a very dry area. Extremely quiet, this is a place for relaxation. Now it is important to note the majority of the population seems to come from Great Britain, with a few families here and there...

We stayed here for 7 nights in June 2015 with two 15 month old babies, in a one bed townhouse. This had everything, oven, dishwasher, fridge freezer, games for children etc, and was nicely decorated. The bonus was a lovely terrace to sit and sun bathe or enjoy food and drink in the sun in privacy. The pool area was...

Beautiful modern town houses with exceptional facilities. Oven microwave dishwasher washing machine and every other kitchen requirement imaginable. Good staff who are very kind and helpful. Resort is a bit remote but very relaxing with beautiful grounds. A shuttle bus is available but not very often therefore a car would be a good idea.

This is a first class well run resort by Macdonald Resorts and by far the best in the area. Accommodation, friendliness of staff, quality of food, kids club and ground maintenance are all terrific. Do not be put off by large group reviews, this is a wonderful resort which caters for all.
