Small pool no way of properly swimming, over zealous lifeguards blowing their whistles at any opportunity. What a waste of time and money.

Staff stood around the pool talking about visitors in the pool. Very rude and disrespectful. When confronted and asked for their name they were very rude. I definitely won't be returning & I'm sure everyone I know also wont.
