You don't get a second chance to make a first impression and the welcoming staff and reception rooms certainly did this. Modern, with an impressive open plan restaurant, bar and lounge area looking out over the pool, yet the restaurant has an intimate feel. Our room was spacious, clean with an excellent bathroom. Some rooms can be linked for families with a shared balcony. Our balacony overlooked the pool area.
The staff were excellent and attended to detail. My wife has to eat gluten free food and they accommodated us well. Our meals were arranged as buffet style.The food selection was good.
The grounds are spacious with self catering villas dotted around. The property sits on a lagoon which is at the end of the grounds.
Our holiday was with SAGA. Most hotels were good with a couple that were below the standard we expected, but this one stood out for its overall standard.
The hotel visit was rounded off by watching our team Reading FC beat Cardiff to qualify for the Chamionship play-off final at wembley.
