Hi Steven, Thanks for taking your time to leave us a review. It's always great to hear customers experiences and how they found our complex.

Hi, Yes you can bring your own Gas BBQ to the pools but just let receptionist know before you bring it in. You are also welcome to bring your own Marquee and setup on the grass.
