We booked our apartment via Stayz.com from an owner that lives in overseas. The advert sold the "sit on the balcony and have breakfast and an evening drink" and said that it had table and chairs and loungers. Unfortunately, the balcony had only a garden bench type seat. This really spoiled our holiday. The apartment was not filthy but it was not clean. All the vents and the cooker filter were dirty. All the lights had insects still in them. The inside lounge had stains on it. Fortunately , the bed linen and towels were clean. The bathroom lighting in both bathrooms was so dark and dingy that you could not see if it was clean or not. There was a hair grip and some paper on the floor. As regards the Actual resort....the pool is surrounded by large trees (which probably are protected) however even when there is sun the tree block it all out. The pool always has lots of leaves in it....There is not bar or cafe etc inside the resort. Nope wont be back and wont recommend thats for sure. Try the maleluca resort, excellent !!!!!!!!
