We have been here twice now in 9 months travelling as a family of 2 + 2. Nice hotel with good facilities but:
1) The two bedroom accommodation lacks privacy from view and sound. We started out in the bungalows but they have no doors at all to the second bedroom. Yes t is on its own level but sound carries up and if you want to stay up after the kids are in bed you have to tip toe around. The second visit we tried the two bedroom apartments. These offer the improvement of a door to the second bedroom but you still have the stupid shutter walls to the main bedroom. As with the bungalow once someone is up in the morning no one in the main bedroom is getting any peace as these shutters offer no cushioning even from a kettle boiling. These shutter walls really should be replaced with something solid in all the two bedroom accommodation.
2) Dining at the hotel is lacking. The raw food quality is excellent but most of our meals were either swimming in something or over cooked. The buffet breakfast is also very expensive for a somewhat cool breakfast that has dried up. How hard can it be to offer soft boiled eggs or omelettes freshly done. They could do with addition something like omelettes to all the menus as a healthy, tasty snack at any time.
