Had a three day weekend there using the summer rates deal. The website is not clear as to how many people can be accommodated in the room and upon arrival we were allocated a room with 2 x twin beds (aka king singles) Defs not enough room for my 6'4" husband myself and 2 children. So hubby asked to be moved and we were given a king room and a rollaway bed. not ideal but was all that was left (or so they said) A little disappointing as we were of the opinion that this would be a "family" hotel and that accommodation would be big enough. The staff are welcoming and pleasant but not so good at problem solving (was a busy weekend for them). Food at breakfast buffet was very nice and was included in our stay, the staff had their work cut out for them trying to keep up with enough food and utensils, but did well. The facilities are great, huge pool, access to the "beach", plenty of towels and loungers with umbrellas (could do with more umbrellas), ability to order food, drinks and icecream delivered to your lounger and charge to room etc.(need more staff outside to offer theses services) Great gym! ability to attend gym and yoga classes. Great sauna, steam room with plunge pool. Tennis court, coffee shop, Hairdresser, Barber. Massage treatments. Small beach store for swimmers, hats, sunshirts etc. Close to Marina Mall for shopping. At the moment there is lots of construction going on around the hotel, so can be a bit of a bottle neck at time. Is an alcohol free hotel but the Mocktails are GREAT, really refreshing in the hot weather!
