Lakeview apartments
The staff were friendly and very helpful. Checkin and checkout were very easy. The hotel is very nice with some good facilities with roomy apartments. The apartments are privately owned and i guess vary in decor. I felt the the appliances and deco were a bit dated. There was air con in the living room and second bedroom but none in the master suite. Overall the rooms were clean and well maintained. Nice views of the lake from the balcony.

Stayed at Sacred Waters for 3 nights. The place is wonderful, the apartment was well equipped, with everything we needed, especially with a 9 month old. They were able to provide a portable cot and a high chair, which made meals times so much easier. Will definitely stay again and recommend
