The rooms looked nothing like in the pictures. This place is good for a short stopover but not for a long stay. The wi-fi didn't work for the first two days of our stay but on telling the staff they made an effort to fix it asap. Laundry services are free so that's a plus. The bed was comfy but the room lacked character and was dull. The couch was old.

Room tip: Rooms closer to the laundry have stronger wi fi signals.

A nice private group of cottages. We had the largest one with 4 adults sharing. It had everything you would need and the staff make such a fuss over you and your needs. Absolutely spotless clean. The only problem is when the staff clean or work in the area they talk non stop so we were often woken up by this. Also our double bed did not have two back legs and they had just put bricks there; we could not work out over the week why our bed was slopping worse. When management was told we did not even get an apology or discount.

Room tip: View your room on the net before booking and make sure you get what you booked for.

We actually stayed at the resort. The reviews tell you that the resort is in need of refurbishing. We were happy with our room. It was clean and bright and has a little balcony looking out over the golf course. The kitchen was great and with shops nearby we were able to eat quite cheaply.
We didn't use the facilities but many of the families did. The indoor pool was always full of excited children and the BBQs were used on a regular basis.
We were greeted warmly and had everything explained to us. Every room had its own car space so no fighting for spots at night.
The wine shop on site was great. There was a range of restaurants across the road as well as an IGA supermarket.
We were able to plan our daily tours from here in our hired car very easily. It has a great central position.
The only disappointing experience for us was the meal we had the first night in the restaurant. Our order was taken fairly quickly by a friendly waitress. We then waited 50 minutes to be served. When it arrived, the food was ordinary to say the least. Others around us didn't seem to unhappy so perhaps we just chose the wrong meals. We didn't eat there again.

Very nice studio rooms - actually very spacious for a studio, with lounge and dining area and basic cooking facilities.

100mtrs to restaurants, supermarket, tavern and a host of other shops. 5 min walk to the beach.

Only down side was really really uncomfortable bed (we both got a sore back) and tiny television.

The beds would stop me coming back.
