Room was pokey but comfy

Just stay somewhere else. We’re not particularly hard to please in general but have to say we’re fairly disappointed in the accommodation and some services. Firstly the booking process is deceiving in relation to the names of the rooms, and the view from the room we are in is nothing like the description and is in fact quite dismal. I understand from other guests that this complaint is common. Our bathroom is terrible with mouldy grout, a broken shower head and lack of drainage in the shower, broken soap holder also a leaking sink tap.  It took 3 different points of contact, all initiated by us, to have rectified. Finally the shower head was replaced but the flooding remained with no explanation and the maintenance person left a dirty rag on our broken soap tray which our soap was in, leaking tap and mould unnoticed/ignored. There was no prior notice of the spa being out of use and the pool bar has been open for just 2 hours during our entire stay, despite the fact that the first 2 days were mostly sunny and they are apparently at capacity. There is no alarm clock as stipulated in the guide. Phone, internet and tv reception are all very unreliable and sporadic. On a lighter note, bar and restaurant staff have been helpful and attentive. Horizons meals have generally been of a high standard also.

I was disappointed with the tiredness of the pool area. Chairs were worn and the one my husband got was broken. There was loose covers that covered a pool cleaning hole that we saw a guest fall in to. Very flimsy cover...

The resort is nice and staff are friendly. Room walls are paper thin so can be noisy at times. Well equiped for covid-19 and location was good.

My wife and I were greeted with a smile and checked in within minutes of entering. Emma who was working the bar and restaurant was great and looked after us till we were done. Breakfast crew were as equally friendly and accommodating. We look forward to our next visit.

All the bells and whistles but lacks luster. Rooms spacious , clean and well equipped but overall the resort facilitites were not well presented. Staff seemed disinterested and the touches u would expect to find in a hotel this size just werent there. Seemed to be no one leading the ship and although we understood Covid restrictions were in place and nothing is the norm...but it felt that was being taken advantage of .staff at reception w particularly the evening staff were unhelpful and disinterested .
