                                          No service at amblution block throughout the whole weekend. Bathrooms full of spiderwebs and bugs No maintenance. Very poor! Jungle gym still full of spiders. Dangerous for the kids to play. Especially inside the tubes.

                                          A beautifull place... maybe on the venue side its clean ...but at the camping site, the ablusions were terrible. In all the corners were old spiderwebs....the lights were full of goggas and could hardly see that the light is on. The camping sites itself is beautifull the swimming pool was clean.
