Our stay
We stayed at this place last year in a delux room it was fabulous This year we couldn’t t get a delux unit so we booked a family unit Expecting to be able to cook only a microwave no sink or running water in the kitchen area had to wash our dishes in the toilet bathroom a plastic bowl was provided and filled the jar from The bath spa tap not happy with this set up at all And no air conditioning the room was very very hot and the windows could only open a little bit We had to ask for our room to be serviced as they have a no contact policy at present We didn’t mind that but did expect clean towels etc without having to ask each time We were told they usually have family rooms with seperate cooking and bathroom but there was a glitch in the system when we booked The pool was great and the location was excellent just a shame the room Didn’t meet what we were expecting The room was very noisey also
