    Loved the size of the villa with 2 x verandahs and internal garage. The views were spectacular, a unique accommodation. Just such a shame it was so tired and unloved and our room wasnt serviced during our 7 day stay as promised

    Overall we enjoyed our stay in this beautiful location but agree with other reviewers that the resort is looking tired. We were also disappointed that the golf course had just been cored. When we booked we were told this would be happening after our stay so we specifically changed the date of our stay to avoid this. It would have been nice to be updated if they changed their plans and brought the coring date forward. The restaurant and bar opening times were also not ideal, we finished golf at 2:30 and tried to have lunch but were told the restaurant was closed even though the compendium in our room said lunch was served until 3pm. Just little things and attention to detail could make this place so much better.

    Breath taking views and good golf

    Fantastic location - great golf challenge. Very friendly staff - Only downside are the opening hours of the restaurant & bar. Breakfast is from 8-10am and Dinner is 6-8pm - the bar is only open 2 evenings a week and closes at 6pm. This means you have to drive to find some food outside the estate unless you want pizza at the winery.

    This is a wonderful getaway place for Kiwis or if like us you’ve just spent 3 weeks touring and tramping New Zealand a lovely treat before the long flight back to Europe. The villa was perfect for our family of 5, we ate in one night and at the restaurant the others. We did our own breakfasts, eggs, porridge pancakes, cereal, all easily rustled up in the fully equipped kitchen. We explored the winery, ate in the restaurant and winery, visited the beaches and used the pool. Lack of joined up thinking and provision from the staff. Villa not serviced daily (beds and emptying of bins sufficient), pool towels are to be kept for the duration of the stay rather than issued at the pool and renewed at each visit (this could have been to save the environment but see my next comment). We hung our pool towels, bath towels and bath mats up for reuse in the villa but returned to the hotel to find 4 towels left for 5 of us and none of our beach towels, hand towels or bath mats. This was an unnecessary situation easily avoided if the staff are appropriately trained and briefed. The sprinklers went on automatically which was great however not if you were having a beer on the deck before dinner as 4 unlucky guests found We ordered bread and humus for our table (of 5) but each time only 4 pieces arrived Water for our table enough in a jug for 3 after talking it through the waiter understood we needed to start with 2 jugs on the table Attention and detailed training of staff will help
