Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Overall we enjoyed our stay in this beautiful location but agree with other reviewers that the resort is looking tired. We were also disappointed that the golf course had just been cored. When we booked we were told this would be happening after our stay so we specifically changed the date of our stay to avoid this. It would have been nice to be updated if they changed their plans and brought the coring date forward. The restaurant and bar opening times were also not ideal, we finished golf at 2:30 and tried to have lunch but were told the restaurant was closed even though the compendium in our room said lunch was served until 3pm. Just little things and attention to detail could make this place so much better.
