    Handy location and relatively new

    The towels were cheap and I was charged for additional towels and @ $200 per night did not represent value for money

    Superb

    Loved the lagoon style pool around the rooms and very relaxing atmosphere.

    The balcony was a little dirty in the corners. Just needed hosing down.

    It was close to where we needed to be, and very comfortable.

    Apparently the booking did not include having clean towels, nor the beds made, however this was not specified either at the time of booking nor when we checked in. There was no mention on the booking confirmation email either. Not nice to come home after a full day out to wet towels on the floor, as directed by the notices in the room, and unmade beds. Would not have been an issue if told about this on checking in.

    Very good

    ..I liked the ambience and the peacefullness of the entire resort..being sorrounded by a lagoon pool is very calming and relaxing..the best highlight of my stay would be the Day Spa that is conveniently located within the resort as well as the nearby shopping centre.

    ..nothing that major but i guess if you want to improve the services, i can only suggest to maybe provide room service as an option for ordering meals so we don't have to come down and pick them up..also, a games room or arcade area where kids can play video games or be entertained without going out of the resort for some fun things to do whilst staying in the resort.

    It was a very romantic setting , clean and tidy. The meals in the restaurant were awesome. Desserts were to die for...all in all such a relaxing and lovely place.

    Very good

    Rooms were decorated beautifully and very clean

    We booked & paid for two rooms but upon check in you only had a record of one. After some looking around you recognised the second. Our second room had no hot water and our friends had to sleep in one room & shower in another. We arrived at 7.30 on a Friday night and were told to hurry up to the restaurant or we it would close. The tv would not work in our room so rang reception who told us what to do and that was it. It still wouldnt work so we just went to sleep. The next morning I rang reception again and a pleasant girl came down to look and discovered that someone had removed cords, presemably for a play station, and so she fixed it for us.

    The place is so beautiful, my family and I enjoyed our 2 nights stay, we are definitely be going back there.

    Very good

    It was handy to where we were going on Saturday night.

    We were extremely disappointed that after booking and paying six months in advance, we did not get the room we requested near the pool, but instead were put in a room facing the car park.

    nice bed, good size room

    no water in the fridge, very small shower, the toilet was dirty that made me feel quite ill, the young male at reception was very un welcoming, not at all pleasant, the girls were nice though, i also had no idea i had to pay a 150.00 deposit this should be advertised.
