We love coming here, we were holidaying last November with the same group have recommended you to several friends in Australia. Mr. & Mrs. L. Australia
We love the new deck on the Sunset Bar, I think it is more inviting for people to go up there now, as I think before only a Few would go as there wasn't many seats around the Bar, but now with the deck it was Full every afternoon, and everyone was having a great time and having the acoustic Band back is a great idea. Well Gracie Kellys what can we say, The Staff, the atmosphere, the Band and the Food all Magnificent. You feel so Welcome and Happy every time you walk in there. Not to say all the other bars and restaurants aren't great as well.. We love the idea of the New Noodle Cart around the Main Pool at lunch times I think this will be a great new asset also, and hopefully will make more people try the local food. Love the Mie Goreng. Ms M. Australia
