Are spa facilities available to use for guests? Also, what time does the pool open/close?
Hi, We saw some non residents using the spa. Not sure what the charges were. They were provided with robes and towels. I think the spa was open 7am to 9 pm, but children not allowed after 6 pm The pool is kidney shaped and small - OK for small children to swim supervised and for adults to relax in.
