Sad face IconDisliked: Property conditions & facilities
Once on site staff pleasant. Covid restricted facilities heavily. Main issue is pre arrival. Received email and told to book meal/swim times. 20 phone calls several messages left to achieve contact with restaurant. If they want you to call they should have someone dedicated to dealing with calls. Also despite having paid for 2 rooms up front they charged my daughter for her room on arrival!

Great hotel with lots of novelties and decor linked to the theme. Swimming pool was fantastic had so much fun. Also the view point on the landing to see the animals was magical. Little perks like seperate entance to park and free park made the whole experience easy and steess free. Great for young children. Looking forward to visiting again next year.
