          don't believe the pictures this place is run down with a new owner who is as hard as nails so don't expect any help from her. People got cut in the pool by tiles the so called safe drinking water is not. The staff are good and do there best we had 5 rooms and 16 people none are happy and all have a gastro bug from the water and if we had not prepaid we would not have stayed. Check this place out big time before you book we paid $195 per couple per night and got nothing while others in our party stayed in other places and got heaps extra for an extra $5 a night. (wifi hahahaha) THE OWNER TOLD US IF WE WANT PERFECT STAY HOME we only wanted value
