I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the accommodation, the service and the catering. The personnel are all well trained, helpful and friendly.

Jasper van Breda Nov 2013
We had the whole resort basically to ourselves. It is the resort’s “out of season time”. Spent most of the time in the Solarium (Jacuzzi) while the wife went for facials and massages that were very reasonably priced. Watched movies in the theater at no cost and the kidz enjoyed the put-put course at the hotel. Staff was very friendly, but slow other wise it would have been excellent !!

Nice facilities. Bathrooms in the hotel rooms need renovating.
Saajida Mahomed May 2010
The location is very nice and the staff was very helpful, friendly and dedicated.

We had problems with unavailability of room service, bad smell in the corridors leading to the room, no bar open at any time and none of the activity advertised at time of booking was at all available - for various incredible reasons... car broken, guide not there, etc..

Still we had a nice stay and enjoyed the location.
