This place was great. We were traveling with our 2yr old so this place was perfect. It was very big and spacious for a 2 bed apartment. There was a few things that had to be cleaned such as the sheets(they looked mouldy) and the roof needed dusting and also the floor looked clean but it left your feet dirty.... More

The state of the resort was in disrepair, including broken steps down to pool, towel rail in bathroom on the floor, broken door latches as... More

Technically this property may have barely met the advertised features however it did not present as a resort or spa. The apartment was dark and dingy with inadequate and dirty furnishings that meant it was impossible to enjoy being in the apartment. We were told that the online images were for superior rooms which we were not able to book.... More

Stayed 5 days in 2 bedroom apartment. Never expected our holiday would be so exciting, as we entered the room we found it really clean and spacious. Over view through the balcony was great and enjoyed every time we swim in clean and well maintained pool. Barbecue along swimming pool was great idea to enjoy the evening with family. Friendly...

It starts when Booking. I was promised a Booking Confirmation; I called twice & received nothing. But they will take your money within 5 minutes. I was given a Daily Rate; Booked direct. I called about 1 month later & was quoted a Cheaper rate than the rate I was originally given for the same room. When I questioned the... More

Disorganised and unhelpful management eho could not organise their way out of a cardboard box. Safety breaches such as broken tiles lying around. Fire alarms blocked. Old and dirty premises. No one in the office or on the phone beyond basic office hours. No communication about safety or cleanliness issues.
