Had only a brief stay but everything we needed was provided and was up to expectation. One suggestion however: To save on use of air conditioning, suggest that fans be installed in both living room and bedroom.

We stayed for just 1 night as we had a family event. Best value for money in the area the cheapest and one of the best compared to others in the area. Would definately be our 1st and only choice when staying in the area next time.

Overall a lovely park with wonderful pools! 3 bedroom unit was well appointed, however there were not enough lounge chairs for 6 people to sit, which is what the unit accommodates? Bike licence for our son was a first! The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms clean.
