Nice place ... But don't use their transfers
Very nice place with huge rooms overlooking the garden, very clean, great breakfast included and well kept grounds. Regarding Transfers .... I would NOT book them with the accommodation. No one turned up to pick us up at the airport so we had to get the local bus eventually. When we mentioned this nicely to the miserable old woman behind the desk ( not the smiley young one ) she actually had a go at us, saying that we should have got on a mini bus ( which was not there) and then got even more "off hand" when we mention this. Because of this we confirmed that we DID NOT require a return transfer to the airport because it was unreliable, they confirmed this ... and then a transfer turned up !!!! Basically, catch the local bus, it stops right outside the airport and will drop you off directly outside reception for $5 each
