Timeshare type appartments with huge living area, and large bathroom and bedroom. Quiet and dark rooms very well appointed. Clean and tidy. Staff friendly but service a little slow. The restaurant was nice with god food and portions. Breakfast buffet with a good selection of hot and cold foods. Good property with excellent internet in a lovely location.

This resort boasts wonderfully appointed rooms. It at all possible, book lagoonfacing and first floor. At times it is rather exposed to the wind, but the view makes up for it. The golfcourse is very interesting, in very good condition and well organized. The restaurant has a stunning view.

Surrounded by nature, with the most spectacular view i can recommend this to any one, no matter what age. The luxurious rooms are spacious, the staff are friendly and accommodating and the food on another level as always. Thank you Simola for treating us like royalty every time.
