We got married here in June 2014 and were terribly disappointed. We turned up the day before the wedding for our 3 night stay and the venue had not been litter picked from the previous wedding (cigarette butts, glass, dog mess and general litter). All the furniture was strewn all over the place from wedding the week before and I (the groom) had to spend 2 hours of my time sorting it out to look presentable.
The external terrace is not as the website shows. It's in poor repair and dangerous especially for girls in heels. Many tiles are loose, broken, mortar missing and it was dirty.
The flower beds were bare and no attempt had been made to make them look good.
The swimming pool was dirty and there was a number of loose tiles in the pool. The external furniture is in poor repair and all the cushions were smelly and damp. The parasols were not fit for purpose and we were told to 'change them ourselves)
The air conditioning did not work and had not been checked prior to arrival. It was clear it had not worked for sometime.
The fridges in the kitchen were full of old leftover food and they were dirty. Absolutely disgusting at anytime but the day before you are getting married at a luxury venue this is just awful.
There is also a problem with the electrics internally and many lights and plug sockets don't work so it is not set up for a wedding at all.
To top it off, the manager was rude and unhelpful. The photos on the website are not up to date so do not be fooled by them.
The internals were generally ok and some of the rooms are stunning but from when we saw the venue in January 2013 it has gone incredibly downhill and there does not appear to be any sort of maintenance programme.
Its your decision but I would avoid as there are now much better wedding venues in the locality at a much better price.
