8/10 Very good

Location was beautiful as expected, service was excellent , accommodation quality was not up to the standard of the rest of the resort and needs some investment not major. Enjoyed our stay . Robert Birch

Restaurant food and staff were excellent. Equipment could be updated. Bungalows are very comfortable although 1 bed is more a studio. Beautiful location and great overall experience.

10/10 Exceptional

Unbelievable resort. If you are after a tranquil, relaxing holiday, then this is the place to be. Excellent location facing west, so you get that unbelievable orange sunset. Food was great. However menu does become limited if you are there for a few days. Although I understand the restaraunt is quite new, as the resort used to be self catering. Amenities and equipment such as kayaks and paddle boards were great. However if you want to use their fishing rods or tennis gear I’d recommend bringing your own as they have been poorly maintained. If you want to book a spa and massage service I recommend you book that in before as spots fill very quickly. There also seemed to a shortage of staff that were unable to fulfil the spa duties. Despite this, it was a memorable stay, I took some breathtaking photographs and was able to fully relax. I hope to be back again!

Wotif’s room descriptions are incorrect and very misleading. Not sure why it’s so hard, I could do it myself after being there for 2 hours. The hotel and staff were excellent.
