Hands-down the best place I stayed at during a recent tour of Austal-asia. The facilities and location are top-notch but what really set this place apart were - the staff. Easy to see why JJ's won the Best Customer Service award. Tracy, Simon (I think), Martin, et al bent over backwards to make me feel welcome, & went WAY beyond the call of duty to help with not 1 but 2 or 3 unusual issues I had - the atmosphere this creates among the guests- I immediately felt at home. plus there's ping-pong!
It was very quiet when I stayed here and there were not many people around so there didn't seem to be much going on. The staff are lovely and the place was really clean although almost every evening there was no toilet roll available... The kitchen was spotless and a nice size, good TV area with lots of information. Pool area clean and BBQ available. about a 15-20 minute stroll to the centre so it was quiet at night which made a nice change! Nice place but nothing special.
