Stayed for one-night only with my husband in Jan, left the kids with their grandparents - that was our big mistake. Public areas are lovely; lobby is impressive; like the bar, bar-food, restaurant set up. Rooms are great but hallways need a serious revamp. During our stay, I reckon we were the only people there with no children. The place...

I stayed for a group meeting in this hotel but wanted to stay more to see the venue. The rooms are large and beds are comfy. The breakfast and all the food in general was good too. Unfortunately due to all the meetings I couldn't enjoy the facilities, the swimming pool looks terrific and the outdoor area is unbelievable nice....

My wife and I had a very pleasant two night stay in this hotel on 21 and 22 April. We were in the Cherry Suite and it surpassed our expectations. The room was spacious and meticulously furnished as was the whole hotel. Service was excellent. We enjoyed an evening meal in the hotel on both evenings, one in the restaurant...

Check-in was by far the nicest, friendliest and most efficient we have ever experienced. Being upgraded to the Magnolia Suite on arrival was also a top way to set us off to enjoying our stay at this top-class hotel. Although beginning to date, the Magnolia Suite is absolutely gorgeous. So spacious. Separate bedroom and large living area with a TV...

We were visiting friends in the area and stayed in one of the homes on the resort for 4 nights. They never offered fresh towels- and it took us 3 phone calls to finally get some extras as we had 5 people and only 4 towels. No hair dryer- --that took 4 phone calls. The beds are old and not...

Loved the location and the hotel was stunning!! Stayed for one night, room was lovely but i was disappointed in the join in the double bed (Two beds joined together, which was a little uncomfortable) The hydrotherapy area was gorgeous and has to be the most relaxing I have ever been to... The food was really good too.
