Nice short stay
The place was delightful, however expensive. Meals and transportation is generally double from the town prices. My main concern was how far it was from the airport. Took 1hr10min all curvy inside roads.

Stayed 1 night in June 2015
Expensive and not properly cleaned room
Location, food and courteous staff
I expected better room condition for the amount of money I paid. Phone was not working and lot of disturbance and could not be rectified at all. Bed sheets were not well cleaned. Location of electrical switches is at an awkward place which is right on the frame in the middle. Didn't get a feel of 5-star.

Good for parents with young kids
Service, Food and Milk for baby's, Breakfast and other mealls
My stay was pretty good, the service is amazing, chef will go out of the way to cook anything for your baby, so you don't have to worry about what and how much food you need to carry for your toddler. Rooms are pretty ordinary, old and does not give a 5 star feel at all. The location is very nice and the whole feel of the holiday village is very clam and nice. Best for people who just want to be at the hotel and relax away from the noisy city.
