          A very large well appointed resort. Our group of 37 was comfortably accommodated for 2 nights. A variety of room styles are available, many opening onto a large moat style pool. Rooms found very clean & well appointed by our group. Would stay here again.

          Visited from Monday thru Wednesday. Our studio swimout room was cozy. Very spacious. Unfortunately since it was late May couldnt of swim around the moat however the spa compensated very well. Wish I stayed longer. Bath robes wouldve been great

          Hi, I heard the pool is excellent. But we plan to visit during mid August. I want to check whether it's too cold to visit. I heard the pool is heated in previous reviews, but guests still complained the pool being cold. Just wondering what temperature is pool heated to, would it be a good idea to bring family with small children during August as pool would be the main entertainment. Thanks

          Hi, The heated pool mentioned in previous reviews is our lap pool which is located in the gym area. Our main lagoon pool which is the resort feature is not heated unfortunately. Regards, Ben
