Just spent a week at this resort and first impressions was grand. The driver Nelson was very pleasant and knowledgeable about local towns to visit. However, we where staying in the one bedroom townhouse with our 1 year old son which was spacious but had ants and other insects in the draws and floor. The bed was very uncomfortable and could feel the springs which made for sleepless nights.
The outdoor pools looked very pleasant, however where very cold the whole week and this seems the case throughout the year, which makes them unusable.
The breakfast was fine but some of the staff rude and unwelcoming.
The Olive tree restaurant is average, most definitely not 5 star standard.
The resort is spacious and great for families wanting a relaxed break away, however, I have spent time in 3,4,5,6 star hotels and this is most definitely not a 5 star hotel, more like a high 3 star to low 4 star rating in my opinion for the reasons mentioned above.
