                                  First of all, the pictures on the website is very misleading and it should be illegal for people to use pictures portraying such untruths.The pool is not sparkling or blue, in fact it had a green tinge of algae and was not suitable to swim in. When we arrived at the family unit we booked the one bedroom had no lights working except for one of the bed lamps. The following day we reported it to the front desk reception where the complaint was met with a blank stare and no indication that it would be fixed. We returned and as expected it was not fixed. Our neighbours were also very noisy playing...

                                  Situated on the main road so very close to all the restaurants. The lodge has all the usual features all kept clean and tidy. Very nice included breakfast. Free WiFi but a little weak.

                                  The staff are so friendly and helpful and the unit had everything we needed. It's also conveniently located, within walking distance of shops and restaurants, which was a great bonus!
