The views over the water were beautiful, especially at sunset. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was delicious, and served very quickly. It was a bit pricey,...

Our visit this time was for a function,which we elected to stay overnight, because of the long home return journey, The resort has a great location and facilities to cater for long staying guests, especially families. Our rooms were clean and most adequate , but...

I stayed at Raffertys resort and was delighted by the friendly staff, beautifully appointed Deluxe Terrace and resort facilities. Although it was a quiet time at the resort there was still plenty to do. The resort grounds are very well maintained and the Pizza restaurant was well priced with generous meal sizes. My tip is using Scoup-on vouchers for a...

Love the fully functioned house. We stayed at a 3 bedroom cottage with 7 adults, totally enough space for all of us. Full kitchen and even laundry room! We went kayaking the other day. Love the stunning view!
