We took up the option of a Luxury Escape package. The room was beautifully designed and comfortable - but as seems to be the case these days, the bed was pretty hard. But this was accepted as customary. Unfortunately, the dishwasher had seen better days - in fact we decided not to use it as it looked a little dangerous. But as we didn't have a lot of crockery to clean, it was not an inconvenience - just a little off putting. We were taken aback by how noisy it was. Not sure whether the wall are thin or the it is just a noisy spot - but banging doors, banging screen doors, gardening activities and delivery vehicles seemed to be incessant and noisy.We tried the spa massage and were very pleasantly surprised. Great service and excellent overall experience. Breakfasts were included and whilst standard in terms of their offering, it was fresh, tasty and more than adequate - and there was plenty of it. The restaurant menu looked OK but we weren't there long enough to try it out - our fault, not theirs. The resort looks tired - it needs some TLC and a bit of upgrading - but perhaps the depressed local economy makes that a difficult decision for management. The staff were great - friendly, helpful, courteous and ever-willing to help. Lovely people. The fact that we probably wouldn't go back is more a reflection of the resort's condition rather than the staff. We enjoyed the stay - another day or so may have allowed us to try other resources offered - but we came from Melbourne with limited time to spend. Good experience without being exceptional.
