The Kingfisher resort staff where super helpful, polite and happy.. our only problem was that there was a jackhammer going constantly in a unit near us over the long weekend... apparently an owner doing his own renovation sure the 7 am start on Saturday is within the noise by council but maybe not in such a tight confine on a busy holiday weekend.. peace and tranquility only achieved by leaving the unit early and returning after 5...

Limited food options for vegetarians and vegans. Downstairs rooms get lots of noise from the room above with creaking floorboards.

Excellent service and great facilities. However the sand bar is expensive for meals. Spare Ribs in a container with wooden knife and fork is a bit ordinary for paying restaurant prices. When checking in at Reception, guests should be advised that the resort towels are available for use for the poo. Other than that I would definitely be back
