Amazing hotel
Amazing resort from start to finish. The staff went above and beyond to help me during my stay. I can’t thank you enough. Hotel is spotlessly clean throughout and the pools, gym and spa facilities are great. The views are fantastic. Honestly couldn’t fault this hotel. But the main thing for me was the team there, absolutely outstanding!!!

Very welcoming with great activities for the kids despite the stormy weather and not being able to take advantage of facilities outside. Worked well for having the grandparents stay as well and to have extended family time.
