A truly enjoyable time was spent here. The staff were helpful and friendly. The room was well equipped and clean. The shower was good and always warm. The pool was so nice to swim in and the entertainment was very enjoyable. But the live musicians were more enjoyable than hearing backing tracks !

Entertainment is same old stuff, great if you into Bingo and Quizes, everyday. I think the management need to move with the times and keep in touch with what’s happening in other establishments. Limited food options. We frequented other establishments for meals and entertainment in the evenings. The lounge area seems underutilized with revenue opportunities.

Clive,Ian and the team, I would like to say thanks for the wonderful entertainment your team has to offer. My family and I were 3 years back at Cabana Beach Resort and the entertainment just gets better. We could not of ask for any better. Our family holiday does not just go about going to the beach but to spend time with the entertainment team. There is so much to offer that there is not enough hours in the day to fulfill all my family needs. Ian, you manage the team with excellence and respect and teat your guests to 5 star all the way. Your assistant Entertainment Manager is in good hands and is following in your legacy to treat guests the way they are expected to treat. Keep up the good work and the Entertainment team is am asset for Cabana Beach Resort. See you all next year. Kind regards Bradley
