Casual dining, or can cater for functions. Great food and atmosphere. It is 15 mins from the city centre, but you’ll enjoy your time around the lagoon style pool. Try the “Sunday Session” for a cold beverage and a relaxed lunch.

Hi Aaron, We have started doing the face lift. The balconies have new balustrades and we have started painting. The pool is also scheduled for a repaint early next year. I will discuss you comments with the Restaurant manager. Thanks for the feedback.

We decided to have a short break of 5 days at the resort. I feel that the whole resort could do with a makeover, however I am sure that the cost to stay there would rise. At the moment it is reasonably priced, has good...More
