A group 4 of us stayed in the villa next to the caravan park. It had a kitchenette, bathroom, 2 bunk beds, a queen and a tv. Location is amazing, a walk away from the city center. We had a booking issue but the staff were extremely helpful. We had purchased a groupon voucher for $169 but because of the...

We've been sleeping here for one week and everything was fine. The hotel is clean, the staff helpful and the location is amazing. It is close to a place where you can rent boats and fishing equipment and my children enjoyed that experience. We will definitely come back here again next summer.

Service from the staff was amazing, especially Kim (I think that was her name!) and Mark. Always polite, said hello/goodbye every time we passed by. Considering this is a cheaper...

We booked online to check in on Good Friday. We chose a family room with lake views. When we checked in we were given a room facing a side street with no views. The room had a terrible stench, reminded me of being in a very smelly public toilet. When we queried about not having the room that we booked...

We have stayed at El Lago waters 5 times over the last 2 years - all bought with Scoopon or Cudo vouchers - in the beginning the vouchers were good value for money - although the resort (and I use that term lightly) is past it's use by date. But the last time we were there I was totally shocked...

Arrived very late, greeted by friendly night manager with easy check in. Room was clean, bed comfortable for good sleep, private gated balcony overlooking pool perfect for morning coffee and relax. Stayed several times, always a good experience.

Checked in 2 days ago to surprise my teenage daughter on a small vacation. Bathrooms are dirty with cockroaches. Linen was mouldy. Furniture is falling apart. Front door is damaged not safe for two females. Reception staff weren't helpful at all. Does not compare to pics online. Do not stay here. The El Lago Tourist Park is worse. Overall do...
