Aimed to get away and relax for a couple of days, and Oaks allowed for just that. Lovely location, room and pool. Shops walking distance from the facility and restaurants/cafe’s within a five minute drive.

The room was great - we had the one bedroom swim out apartment and it had everything we needed for our short stay. The swim out feature was benefitial for that easy access to the water. I highly recommend staying here.

I would like to recommend getting the one bedroom swim out because it has a fully equiped kitchen, jacuzzi and the convenience of just having the pool literally outside your balcony. It was a very relaxing and fun stay despite of the unpredictable weather conditions.
