The guy at reception was very nice. We booked 3 apartments and it all was perfect. The rooms with the view are stunning. All facilities in the room are luxury and convenient. There is an exit to get out to the running track nearby the lake which you can morning jog everyday.

How lucky are we? This place is so nice. 3 families met here for a long weekend. We had 2 lake front apartments next door to each other on ground level.
The view is spectacular and it was lovely to fill the hot tub with fresh water, sit soaking and enjoying the view.
The staff who greeted us were super friendly and helpful and it was lovely to receive fresh towels each day.
The children made great use of the swimming pool and the adults enjoyed the gym.
The apartments were immaculate and spacious and suited our needs well.
I like the fact there is a fabulous cafe really close on the lake front that made me a beautiful coffee and breakfast.
I do hope we get the chance to stay here again.

Wow - Absolutely beautiful
