Location and the property is fantastic, all weel kept and nice. However the first minor thing to annoy me is the complete lack of parking, especially if the golf course is busy. Had to park on the side of the small road and was just hoping the following the morning that the car wasn't hit during the night.
Had a Junior Suite for the evening which was wonderful, lots of space, nicely furnished, fabulous black marble bathroom with his and her sinks and a lovely deep bath. But again small problems. Some of the light fittings didn't always work with the touchscreen pads. As usual with most hotel the TV service was very poor, no online billing info etc. However everything was spotless and in a very quiet part of the hotel.
Pool area is very nice, my wife had a deep tissure massage which I'm told was lovely, plus she got her hair done and was happy....BUT...suana and syeam room, along with the showers in that area, seemed grubby, lots of used water cups sitting all over the place, needed a generla clean up.
Dinner was very nice, no complaints, again very nice and attentive staff but something was always missing. They only had one wine menu in the bar..which someone else had so we ordered blind. there was a wedding on so they had no wine glasses in the bar! The following morning at breakfast they neglected to tell us where the buffet was...just small silly things that took the sparkle off.
Would recommend but lacks the cutting edge.
