This is an old timeshare resort managed by classic holidays. We had a beach studio right next to the golf course, great outlook on a sunny morning. Whilst the decor is a bit dated, rooms are comfortable and good value. Each room has a kitchenette and there is an IGA just over the road. If you are a keen golfer...

While the first week in a one bedroom unit had sufficient space and seating for four people it had a view of the car park and was close to the roundabout in front of the hotel. Unit was incredibly noisy due to acoustics after internal gardens had been removed. Our second week stay was directly below with the same views....

Great location, with good facilities, however the rooms need a refurbish. No air conditioning, however fan was available for the reception. There was no house cleaning for our 2 night stay. Would have expected at least a change of towels. The meal in the restaurant was above average, but a little over priced. No live entertainment available either. The resort...

We had time share banked that we used to book here. The location was good to do day trips from. We stayed in unit 2 which slept 6 and overlooked the golf course. The place is clean but dated. The kitchen has pots but no frying pan, only an electric skillet, and there is no servingware. The couches are not...

We stayed recently with the accommodation paid for by a relative. If the money had come out of my pocket I would have been having words with housekeeping over the stench of urine in the downstairs room during the warm afternoon. Although we booked a ground floor unit due to my wife having buggered knees, we still ended up with...

Nice location. Unfriendly staff. Did not feel welcome at all especially at the restaurant and bar. The bar staff and waitresses were very rude and we felt very uncomfortable which is a shame cause the food was nice. Will go back when all staff have changed from reception to house keeping. Then maybe they might smile 🙁
