Went for a quick family holiday. The 3 bedroom apartment we got was nice and had everything we needed. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The only downside to the resort is the lack of maintenance. The sauna was not working, the children's playground was closed for repairs and the lights on the path to the pool near...

I'll get the bad out of the way first. When we checked in, our room was not ready for us and by that, I mean that they sent us to the room but it had not been cleaned. They quickly moved us to a clean room and all was good to go! That being said, the rest of the trip...

When I stayed here, they decided to do maintenance on the gate that is the only access for vehicles in and out. All Access out of the resort was blocked by Car. We were locked it. People were yelling, swearing because they couldn't leave with the Vehicles. Not a very family friendly environment. I had to walk through the Lobby,...

Before I start units are individually owned and not all are rented through the management and reception, but it all starts with a first impression. The reception, arrogant, lazy are just 2 that come to mind, the woman didn't even get out of her chair to talk, the guy had no manners whatsoever and I wasn't even in his conversation...

Our apartment was clean, tidy and well appointed. Check in was easy and tbe reception staff were very friendly and knowledgeable when it came to organising trips and car hire. We had a great stay the only bad thing was the weather!!!! Thanks Lale Resort.

The place is beautiful, we booked through air b n b for 5 nights. There are plenty of well light pools which you can use in the evening and the reception staff are kind and helpful. The location is quiet however about 20-25 mins walk to the nearest row of local conveniences or around 40-50 walk into the centre of...

We stayed in 2 bedroom self contained apartment which was good quality and spacious. Full size fridge, good cooking facilities inc oven, note they are self contained so cooking utensils and cuttlery are provided but you need to provide everything else (inc toilet paper, garbage bags, pool towels etc..) Resort featured several different swimming pools which we all enjoyed and...

Where to start? We were first here around two years ago - on our first walk around we noticed that the gym was closed due to repairs. It's still closed. This is not a place you would call quiet and relaxing. The maintenance staff LOVE their leaf blowers and spend a lot of the day walking around doing just that...

I have stayed here 4 times previously but not for 9 years. It used to be a pristine immaculate resort but it's not been maintained well & is starting to look a little tatty around the edges. The prices being charged though are still top wack. Previously I wouldn't have hesitated to give it a 5 & to be honest...

The apartments were very clean and well furnished. The views were good and the pools were excellent. The only complaint was that the main air con wasn't working properly, but the ones in the bedrooms were great. Nice place, definitely stay here again.
