Positive Reviews

Central location

Guests thought that the resort is very well situated. It is central and convenient for most attractions of the area and offers direct beach access, which is a big plus point. There is also a convenient pizzeria and pub across the way said guests.

Great cabin style accommodation

The cabins are well appointed and very well equipped for families who want self sufficient accommodation. They are comfortable, some with spacious furnished patios and enough place to stretch out. Guests also expressed appreciation for resort amenities such as pool, spa pools and sporting facilities.

Good value for money

For the location and the amenities offered, the resort is described as offering very good value for money.

Negative Reviews

Thin walls

Guests found that the cabin walls are rather thin and that sound tends to carry very easily. The no-noise -after-ten house rule is not always effective. The music from the pub across the way is also loud and carries on late into the night.

In need of updating

Several guests felt that some aspects of the resort needed updating. Some of the bathrooms in the cabins are small and outdated, the changing rooms at the pool also are uncomfortable and in need of updates said guests.

Paid extras, other issues

The resort charges extra for activities such as mini golf and for the use of the basketball and tennis courts. The jumping castle for kids also requires a deposit. The resort has a surcharge for credit card use.  Wi-Fi is available only in the lobby and that is not very reliable.
