Location was fantastic and we would book another holiday there for this reason alone. The gardens, pool and outdoor restaurant area were gorgeous. Our room was comfortable but dated with a couple of annoying things to contend with. On day one of our 10 night stay we reported the dishwasher was out of order and the promise to swap it over never happened. Another small annoyance was the wardrobe door that couldn't be opened because the airconditioner was in the way.
Breakfast was included in our tarrif but we only tried it twice. We were very disappointed with various breakfast items in the same Bain Marie - bacon swimming in oily water, same with the scrambled eggs. Most unappetising. We dined only once in the restaurant on the Beef & Reef night and were served gristly meat with extremely over cooked prawns. I suspect that maybe the main chef was not on duty that night.
The staff were always friendly and helpful and the entire venue was beautifully clean.
