Having read all the reviews prior to booking this holiday, we were extremely disappointed in what we experienced. On arrival we were greeted by lovely friendly staff who invited us to take breakfast while we were waiting for our room. On moving from the reception area we started to see signs of a tired hotel. Areas of decking covered in bird lime and woodwork in need of attention.
We found the breakfast selection very poor, especially if you were going to be there for any length of time. For example hardly any fresh fruit selection, considering you are in a tropical climate bananas and pineapple are really not enough!
We had chosen a beach front room (not a basic room) and we were not disappointed with the rooms view, but I am afraid this was the only good point of this accommodation. The room was generally dirty, curtains stained and too short allowing to much light in and bedroom fittings in need of replacing. Walls marked and with a healthy compliment of ants, mould in shower area, paint peeling off bathroom shelves and poorly fitting fixtures.
This was enough for us to contact our tour rep, who then arranged a meeting with hotel assistant manager (Kevin). We made it perfectly clear that we were not prepared to stay in the hotel any longer even with the possibility of an upgrade. Full credit to Kevin, he took all our observations on board and transferred us to a sister hotel, Paradise cove, a world apart!
We have been fortunate to travel widely and stay in various star accommodation and we can honestly say this was the worst hotel we have come across. This is a shame as it is in a lovely location and with some investment it could be a lovely hotel again.
