Crowne Plaza


21 December 2014

Very good hotel with lovely rooms, only issue would be the bathrooms need updating a bit especially the taps etc,as they are brass and they are discolouring.

Apart from this Top notch.

Excellent family stay


10 December 2014


A perfect break for what we wanted - a relaxing stay with excellent amenities. Nice pool which the kids enjoyed. Pleasant and helpful reception staff on checkin. We stayed at the village and although there were a few functions and stag/hen dos at the resort we had a very quiet and restful stay at the village. Large comfy beds. Very clean and modern facilities and very child friendly. We were a little late to the Grill restaurant for dinner but the staff made an effort to accommodate us. Excellent selection at breakfast which was not too crowded. Reception staff were able to allow a slightly later than usual checkout on the final day. Definitely stay here again.

Great Front Desk Service and Accommodating


06 December 2014

My family and I checked in on Friday 11/28/14 at 1:30pm which was earlier than what Check In time was. The Front Desk person Antonio accommodated my family and I and put us in a bigger room based on us being a big party and was able to move rooms around in order to get 3 Rooms set up together. The Extra price I paid was a little pricey but at the end it was worth it based on all of us being together. The rooms were well prepared and we were able to get a late Check Out on Sunday 11/30/14. It was really a home experience and not a hotel type of feeling.
