Lovely piece of tranquility ”

The apartments are exactly as they are depicted in images and well laid out. Fully equipped with everything one may need. Big comfortable bed. Not enough closet space in the bedroom but we survived. Water pressure was low in the shower and for flushing. The service at the restaurant is friendly but slow and the food was not amazing. I had toast and it really didn't work well with home made bread -it eas hard and fell apart. My partner had a prego roll and he didn't enjoy the meat.

Problems problems problems”

Unfortunately no hot water in our unit on arrival the issue was only addressed the night before we left. No tag to seal the door on arrival like other first resorts that indicate they've been properly sterilised. Email confirmation said to request the room to be serviced if required which we did request, but this was ignored. On arrival the concierge was reluctant to take our request again. Not upto usual standard we expect from first resorts group. No coffee or tea kept in the room on arrival. No sanitiser in room on arrival. They gave us the key to the room next door to shower. Which had tea, coffee and handsanitizer. Very disappointing

Too many flies and dusty ”

The chalet itself was very dusty and dirty, looks like they haven’t vacuumed and cleaned in a while. Also lots of flies and walls are very thin. Neighbors making lots of noise

There was no power from 7pm when I checked in until I checked out the following day. And no generators available. Lovely place but having no electricity made for a very unpleasant stay.

We spent a night here. The location is easy to reach off the highway. Lovely views. The restaurant is open 8-4pm, and there are no restaurants close by. Breakfast was great but ensure you make plans for supper in advance.
