We are lucky to visit the hotel twice a year and although it has a new name, it still has the same high standard of service. It's a work in progress with new shops and restaurants being added to the resort and it was great to see how the new Ocean Suites extension to the hotel just fits in as...

I'm sure this is a great option for families with kids but I don't think its the best choice for couples. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. I was not impressed by the food, especially the breakfast buffet. All in the food and rooms were over priced and I was expecting more.

We stayed at the Pine Cliff during February so it was quiet but the service and the accommodation were just great.
