Stayed at this hotel in a Guest Villa. We were disappointed with the Guest Villa as it is just a hotel room. On checking out our concerns were noted by Staff Member Kate who was lovely, very helpful and professional and actually gave us a discount which was unexpected.

Unless u want a pool and spa full of screaming kids and watching finding nemo on a big screen while ur eating dinner DONT GO HERE. Overpriced place that's not that relaxing, your better off going to a little boutique place for peace and quiet.

Despite a group booking made 9 months earlier and a request to keep us all together they placed us in villas scattered in different areas. My immediate family of kids and grandkids booked two villas in our name...

Crowne Plaza certainly gave a fantastic first impression as soon as we stepped in the door. We rented a 2 bed villa. It was so spacious with our two little kids (5yr old & 3yr old). It was bigger than our tiny home! Staff were very friendly and approachable. Pool was awesome and catered to the younger kids. We would...

The kitchen was well equipped, although it didn't have an oven and at the time I wished the fridge was bigger. It was within easy walking distance to the pool and other...
