Thank you for your enquiry. Our pool and spa facilities are open and fully functioning. Obviously, with all things mechanical in our lives, we never know when unexpected maintenance is required, however we have no reason to believe anything untoward will happen in the meantime as everything is fully maintained and operational. Our guests thoroughly enjoy using our facilities and we are sure you will too. We look forward to welcoming you. Please contact us as soon as possible in order to make your reservation.
