Keep the outdoors green or paved. Too much sand sailing to the pool. Rooms inside are great but the TV package requires upgrading. Oh lastly there is no proper network reception. I've had to get my messages from my phone off site.

What a brilliant location on the beach or at the lagoon and the unit is lovely and the pool wonderful and the restaurant helpful!There is enough room for 2 adults and 2 teenagers and on a rainy day the tv was helpful and we even played monopoly and dominos.

The staff at reception were exceptional but the cleanliness of our unit was terrible. The price included daily cleaning of the unit (except over weekends). Our unit was never cleaned at a reasonable and regular time. We once got home late in the afternoon and no one had serviced our unit. We went and bought our own scourers and cloths...

The unit we were issued didn't live up to the website pics. Our bedroom window opened right onto the main driveway which made it noisy and hampered privacy. The toilet was slightly problematic. Some of the pics showed a games room, when we arrived we learned that this had been converted to a restaurant a while ago. I feel it...

Enjoyed our stay tremendously. Our unit was close to the private swimming pool which is an advantage if you have small children. Close to the beach, good restaurants in the facinity. Friendly and helpful personnel. Would go back anytime!

Was one of the worst experiences that I have had. Would not recommend this to anyone. Food was served cold. Rooms not kept clean. Had to keep asking for towels. Was really a bad experience and would not come back

The gardens need some attention. With the current drought every thing has been understandably put on hold. The ground staff could however "tidy up" a bit. Reception staff were helpful. Coffee shop on site served good food, but closed more than open. The "cappuccino" was made with filter coffee and the milk was overheated so 1/5. The "games" are stored...

We flew down for a summer holiday. A lovely surprise to find our accommodation so close to the beach. Safe and comfortable. Kids enjoyed the pool and sandpit. Area quiet and tranquil. The nearby lagoon was also a hit!

What a wonderful week we had. It is quite, clean and a beautiful, well maintained resort with friendly staff that is always there to assist when needed. Close to beach and other facilities with everything closeby when needed.

This was a pleasant surprise! I always get a bit itchy nowadays, considering I have a 2 year old toddler, but our ground floor unit was beautifully furnished and our unit overlooked the (fenced) swimming pool and the massive sand pit, so I could let my toddler run free whilst looking on from our "porch". The kitchen was very well...
