I stayed here with 7 family members over christmas. We had 2 standard rooms and a villa . The staff in this hotel was friendly and excellent on every level. It was not there fault that the closer we got to christmas the hotel started filling with guests so standards did drop.

Dear Leigh, Thank you for staying with us over the festive season and my apologies if you felt standards slipped as occupancy grew, this should not be the case and something we have to work on so we can deliver the same standards whatever the occupancy. I am glad that you enjoyed the cinema under the stars and the in villa BBQ that the team prepared for you. We do bench mark our prices with other Resorts so we certainly do try and stay competitive and I will look into this again to make sure this is still the case. Thank you for sharing your feedback, Kind regards, James

Hi, there is 1 tennis court. It is a good condition and yes you need to book it. I don't believe there is a cost to it.
