    Quiet, tropical feeling resort. Food in the restaurant was first class. Beautiful views. Friendly, relaxed staff. Big bedroom. Only issue was other guests walking on the deck past our bedroom window , had to keep shades down which detracts from enjoying the view.

    OK Family Stay

    We stayed at Carrington in one of the 3 bed villa's. The house itself was spacious and clean but a little tired around the edges. The AC was great ( needed as temp near 30 outside ) and views wonderful. Very self contained and as such feels quite removed from the facilities of hotel, which require's a drive to get to. We were there when very quiet so not much atmosphere and the restaurant at vineyard told us that food was unavailable 2 hrs before closing time as they had had a slow day and where closing early. We enjoyed our time there, pool is great, and less than 10 min drive to awesome beaches makes up for some of negatives.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Staff were okay except for the pool maintenance guy who was really rude and lacked customer service training. The pool was closed and in maintenance for 2 days that we were there. We got 3 villas. For the amount they charged a night you’d expect it will be good and spotless, but they were not. My family stayed in villa 4 which was ok but had clothes in the master’s bedroom which we think are left by previous guests. Villa 5 aircon was barely working in the lounge and the blinds was stuck and could not be adjusted which made the room really hot and uncomfortable on sunny days. Villa 2 aircon did not work at all. We reported this but staff did not do anything about it and just said they know about it but cannot do anything as aircon is old. Driving range is a dollar per ball which is too expensive. They should make it less expensive tor charged per bucket if balls to entice guests to try it. Winery and cafe was good.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Location was great with beautiful views across the golf course and out to sea. Villa we stayed in was very tired, needs updating into the 21st century. Carpet was stained, TV aerial point hanging out of the wall, some window blinds not working and outdoor deck furniture was broken with only 2 chairs for a 3 bedroom Villa. Staff were informed of the issues and overall disappointment and these were addressed with a reduction in per night cost which more appropriately reflected the property condition.

    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
