I chose to stay at the Diamond Beach Resort despite the many negative reviews on Trip Advisor. As suggested I requested a ground floor, renovated apartment. Well at least it was on the ground floor (apartment 97). When we were leaving we handed reception a long list of maintenance issues we discovered. Firstly the front screens doors did not close properly and were not able to be locked. We had to fix the toilet lid as it was very loose. The lightbulb above the dining table was blown and needed replacing. The taps in the bathroom were hard to turn off and on (believe they may need new washers). A power point in the kitchen sparked when we turned it off and lastly the fans and the bathroom vents were very dirty and in need of a clean.
However, the location was very nice in a quiet street within a short walk to the beach and the pool facilities including poolside toilets, showers and bbq facilities were excellent. There is one heated and one non heated pool and two spas plus an awesome kiddies wading pool area with water sprayers. The pool facilities are open until 10 pm so you can go night swimming if you wish. I would probably stay here again just for the pool. The apartment was just so so but not totally horrible. In both bathrooms the door opened it onto the toilet and there was stoppers on the door to avoid damage to the toilet! Another thing I thought was a poor idea was glass furniture (table and coffee table) in a two bedroom apartment, not really a great idea for families with kids.
