We had 5 days off and decided last minute to grab some sunshine. Check in was swift and although our room wasn't ready, were were issued with our wristbands and sent off quickly which was great. The grounds are very pretty and the pool area was large with plenty of loungers. Our bungalow was large spacious and clean. The food...

Just returned home. Great week. Weather was beautiful. This is a nice complex. Yes, bungalows could do with updating but they are large and clean and set in lovely, well maintained grounds. Food is fine, you will find something to suit you. Drinks are good too with all the usual suspects. On site supermarket is expensive but there is another...

The rooms are spacious and the staff friendly. However the buffet is repetitive and of poor quality. The whole place needs a lick of paint The kids have loved it through! Overall it's good value for money but far from 5 star :)
