I booked for a week, thinking it was a nice resort. Found a cheap nasty motel, dark and dirty. Never had the housekeeping service in a week. Sometimes I found a couple of fresh towels on the bed. Tiny room for 2. No parking. Just couldn't get rid of this "dirtyness" feeling! I am sorry but I have to say... More

I couldn't and didn't even get into my booked room I am a wheelchair user. I booked directly with reception & was assured that I would have an accessible room but when I got there the room was on the 3rd floor. I was offered the first floor by management as it was only up one flight of stairs. Not... More

Just trying to get a room was painful with the phone service constantly cutting in and out. No parking available, despite being told there was plenty. Then treated like I was stupid for my efforts. Was going to be my first time staying here. Yeah, never. Big mistake.

These pictures have been resized but not Photoshopped and I still have the original ones. Mould "everywhere", dirty, holes punched in the bedroom door not repaired, dirty oh such dirty floors, latches broken, grouting on... More

The carpets..... Well we would not walk on it with out shoes. The shower had mould in it and the furniture especially... More

This unit needs a good clean. There was dust & dirt behind the bathroom door & the windows & screens were filled with dust that had turned to dirt from the rain. There were no coat hangers in the cupboards. There was mould in the shower recess between the tiles. The GPS did not recognise the address as this section... More

Almost everything in the room was very dirty. Curtains were disgusting, dinner chairs topped with oil stains I was too scared to sit on. Aircon was leaking. There was a big gap under the door insects could get in easily. Very noisy environment you could hear every single word from other guests. Won't come back ever again!

Arrived at 3:00 to check into our room, on my own with a baby and four year old. Was made to wait at reception for fifteen minutes after the gentleman answered a call for a booking enquiry while I was right there. FINALLY when he got off the phone there was no recognition of the wait whatsoever. I was given... More
