I visited this resort with my son for two nights. We had a two bedroom villa which was fabulous. The spa was great. Facial very relaxing. Needs to have another breakfast option instead of buffet as just felt like toast and the cost of buffet was pricey.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights for a business event/trip. The amenities were really good and the restaurants/buffet food was to high standard. I cannot comment on the golf amenities or any wine tours but this hotel looks like a standard Crowne plaza hotel with good proximity to wineries if this is your thing.

It looks like this hotel can do it all - weddings, exhibitions, meetings, family, golf, romantic breaks. The rooms are spacious and modern and the grounds are extensive - great for a little one to run around on the grass, in the sandy volleyball court or on a scooter.
