Stayed here 5 nights with 5 year old and 8 year old. Sofa bed easy to set up and comfortable. Kitchen small but practical. Oven didn’t work but replaced with new one the same day. Evening kids entertainment a bit hit and miss. Not the best room design or atmosphere for entertainment but did have table tennis and pool table. Staff polite and friendly. Kids loved it.
The accommodation was a nice small house in a holiday complex. Very comfortable, modern, good facilities and excellent value. Unfortunately the service in the bar was generally poor, unattentive and off hand. The wifi in the bar/bistro didn't work and the staff had no interest in resolving it.
Brought a relative here from abroad for my Dad's funeral. Trouble checking on due to IT issues. Had to wait half an hour and finally receptionist said they would just use my card details when problem resolved and let me know if any problems. Now I find that another relative has been charged for my room. Have been on phone on and off 3 hours this morning about the refund: staff rude, inefficient and refuse to apologise or take any responsibility for the error. Diamond Resorts Customer service said (literally) "It's not our fault - problems happen." I have explained it's not just one "problem" or "mistake" but a series of them, and the advisor said. "Well we're not responsible for the mistake" I explained that as I certainly wasn't, who was? She huffed a lot and said she'd get back to me. Still waiting. Completely UNPROFESSIONAL and does not reflect well on an organisation that likes to promote themselves as an upscale resort company. I would not go to a Diamond resort again.
Durrant House Hotel in Bideford MUCH BETTER and more convenient for town, countryside, beach and services.
This is one of the few Diamond resort properties that comes anywhere near our expectations.
Our lodge was comfortable and clean .. reasonably well equipped not much of a view though and on a very steep hillside. We did not use the public areas this time as the biggest and best room is haunted by their sales team. The bar lacks atmosphere.
Be wary of the front door steps when its raining as I slipped on a wet upper brick step and banged my knee.
I would recommend this to others with the warning to say no to chats with the sales teams as they always go on for ever and are hard sell.
