I had doubts after the negative reviews I read. But went through with the booking for a 2 day 1 night stay with my family of 5. I was not expecting much considering the 'okay' priced. But I was indeed surprised with the welcomed mode that was enjoyable after about approximately 1 hour journey with the scorching heat.
Congratulations for all the HARRIS crews. Be it the reception counter, Sea sports staff , Dining ( EVERYONE)!!!..They are all so helpful, smiley, courteous always acknowledging us no matter where we go around the resort.
This will definitely not going to be the last holiday destination for us but many!
The one thing I wanted to bring up was the bowling alley that was rather a run down. the room was filled with mosquitoes. On the event I went over to bowl on the 11th april evening the male staff who was at the counter was against the hubby and my daughter from using our own bowling shoes..yes we brought with us bowling shoes and ball.
My family is a avid bowling players. Since we knew that harris has a bowling alley we brought ours personally. The staff insist that we rent the shoes there. It is like telling us that if we were to enter a bowling alley elsewhere NONE is allowed to brought theirs.RIDICULOUS, As long as we paid for the games , that matters. After another staff intervenes only then we were allowed to play..But the mood was just not there. After 2 games ( when we thought of having more) we just could not continue. Even the next day event that includes bowling we cancelled.
But still HARRIS ! we definitely had a good time !!
last but not least a very good compliment to ANNA JADE ( H-SPA) for being such a good host to us! we even exchange numbers!!.she is such a sweetie, going out extra mile for us. THANK YOU SO MUCH !
