Friedly, professsional staff
The effervesent friendlieness of the Staff. They obviously like the environment they work in and it reflects heavily on the running of the resort. I note that staff are rewarded for being monthly and annual winners. This type of reward will have staff wanting to be a winner thus will sell the resort to people who are staying for a holiday.
The weather ........ only joking
The staff were great. Great atmosphere! Room to move and option of pools. Other guests are happy!
The toilet made a horrible noise when flushed, the hair dryer look as though it had been dropped. Water splashed out under shower door and made whole bathroom wet! Had to ask for more towels to clean up the water. Fridge rattled all night and I couldn't see any smoke alarm in the room. But these things didn't bother me too much.
Rooms were refurbished and were very modern and clean. Great pool areas. Close to airport and city if driving. Lots of nice sitting areas around the hotel. Staff were prompt when we complained about noisy children running through the complex at 10.30pm.
Gardens in some places were in need of a tidy. This is a huge hotel with over 400 rooms so if you need a good nights sleep ask to be put away from groups if you want a good nights sleep.
Everything was fine..our room was comfortable and roomy...well equipped (linen, tea, coffee etc) close to pools, spa and lounges..paths around resort well sign posted...
it was a nice room the pools were good it was like a relaxing getaway the staff were helpful the breakfast was amazing loved it.
i did not like that there was no doona on the bed just sheets because i cant sleep without a doona.
We were there on an overnight and for the convenience of the airport for an early departure. As was advised at time of booking, this was a non-refurbished room, hence the reasonable tariff.
Friendly staff, great value for money.
Grounds could have been tidier, needed a good sweeping up all round, bit scary walking around the area at night, saw someone in a house across the road selling drugs, also people sitting on the pavements drinking, not the best of areas. The only reason I would not recommend hotel to my friends/family would be because of the above comments.
The price was OK, everything else was terrible.
The hotel is large, has a rambling layout and seems to cater for coach groups. The lobby is open to tour buses that sit idling for ages and is very noisy and chaotic. Early departing tour groups were shouting and clattering luggage outside our room at 5.30 am. The dining area is also noisy and chaotic, we had to shoulder our way to the food. Our rooms, though fairly comfortable, were faded and beginning to fall apart, the bathroom fan and air con grumbled like earthmoving machinery. Parts of our room were so worn that proper cleaning had become impractical. We booked 5 properties on line this trip, all were roughly in the same price range and this was the only one to disappoint.
Reception staff (Francis) was very good.
Everything - it was revolting. We left after 1 night and found alternative accommodation. Would never return. Foul. In fairness, they did give us a refund.
The price and facilities and Breakfast.
The matress on the bed was old and sunken. They are currently referbishing the hotel. The sunchairs by the pool are old and broken.
I like the ease atmosphere and layout - the friendly staff and the way requests (such as having a ground floor room) are met so easily - thank you :-)
Excellent facilities; great swimming and spa pools. Very clean site, well maintained, impressive breakfast. Fine food in both the restaurant and poolside cafe.
It was mainly for a brief stopover for one night and it served our purpose very well.
the worm character the charm of the place .
