Air conditioning in the room would have been good as the weather was warm during the night so it didn't aid a comfortable sleep.

Food in restaurant was not up to standard for the price charged. Tiny portions, very overpriced. Asked to speak to the manager, never was able to do this as he never approached us he just spoke to the waitress and ignored us all evening Swimming pool/jacuzzi out of use whilst we was there Wedding was being held - all of the gardens/outdoor area was closed off for this
