My husband and I spent a relaxing week at the resort. We found it to be a lovely place to spend the week. The staff very helpful, Ron in the café a delightful man. Our unit was very clean and comfortable, the pool and the garden area was neat and tidy. The free breakfast and internet was a bonus. This...

Dear Guest, I am very disappointed to read this review, we stand by our high level of cleanliness which is evident in the other guest reviews on this website. Upon inspection the only mould found in this apartment, pointed out by the guest, was inside the bathroom sink drain. The guest went to extraordinary lengths to locate this, by dismantling...

The pool here is very nice, perfect for children and adults alike. The free wifi was also very much appreciated. However, the rooms are very dated, the fan in the second bedroom made a loud clicking sound (most unfortunate as we don't enjoy AC throughout the night) and the smell of other people's second hand, stale cigarette smoke enveloped our...

When you enter it looks great but only once you check out the room you would get turned off. The rooms are regular sized but unfortunately AC is provided in only one room, so the other rooms get quite stuffy and hard to sleep in. The rooms are by the road so the noise level is quite high. Furniture is...

Dear Guest, It is disappointing to hear that you were not satisfied with your stay. Please keep in mind we are a 3.5 star establishment. Our rates are very competitive, the breakfast is complimentary as is the WiFi. Complimentary breakfast is not something usually on offer when booking self-contained accommodation, this can be a big saving, especially for families. We...

8 days were spent in a three bedroom unit shared with 2 other couples. Friendly, helpful staff and a clean environment. A lovely pool with a large poolside BBQ available. We found enjoyable walks across to the beach and could comfortably walk to the main shopping centre. TIP ** if you are a light sleeper ask for a room away...

This was a borderline 3 but given that the stay was fairly pleasant I would give a 4 especially when you compare the prices.
