    Very comfortable resort well-suited for families with children. Close to high-quality attractions (beaches!) and activities, but one can choose to stay within the resort and still find lots of choices.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The property is pretty big and spacious. Staff is friendly Downside is if you dont have a car, need to walk quite a bit to get anywhere. The bungalows /apts are spacious and have kitchens in the units. But the room look is dated (1990's I feel). The main thing I did not appreciate is that they nickel and dime you for everything...$1 for a towel at the pool, $10/hr if you want a late check-out.

    One of our favorite places to enjoy repeatedly.

    We absolutely love this facility - it is quiet and comfortable. Now that it includes WiFi in the stay, we are completely satisfied.

    Just like home

    Great comfortable stay in a very clean and big apartment. Like a new apartment. Good bed, size, layout and ease of DIY move in. Good WiFi and free parking along the street downatairs. Location is central and easy to move around. Downside, besides staying in December(low season) with most shops closed thus places to eat we had problems with the toilet flush system which the management got the staff to attend immediately. Excellent choice.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    The stay was a mixed experience. The check-in was without doubt the worst part of it. We arrived at 3pm and check-in was from 4pm but we were hoping they would be able to fit us in however we were told the earliest we could expect to get our villa was at 5.30. Hearing that after a flight and an efficient pick-up arranged by us via the hotel was really disappointing. It would have been nice to be offered even a bottle of water in the heat but nothing. We dropped our bags at reception and they told us they "hoped" they would be able to bring us to the villa using their transport later but no guarantees !!!! that really went down well as you can imagine. We went to the adjacent Noa cafe for lunch and if they told us once thy told us 10 times that they wree closing at 5PM and the kitchen at 4pm. They gve us the impression that we really were an inconvienience for them.

    Super comfy, great location, amazing pools

    Fabulous stay. This isn't the first time we've been here and we'll definitely return again. Stayed in a premium apartment, the beds were really comfy and the place was well equipped. The service was great, the staff were really friendly and welcoming. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The location is great, just a short walk away from restaurants and cafes. A car is useful as there are lots of really great eateries around (or a taxi)

    Fabulous stay

    Really nice complex, pool is well managed with a booking system. On site restaurant Il Vero is very good. Grounds are beautifully maintained. Car needed if you want to make the most of the lovely restaurants in QDL, can recommend Julia’s, Issu’s, Maria’s and Cheeky Pup.
