Family Resort, Great View
NUMBER OF ROOMS
We were at the Palumboreef beach resort for 10 nights. We took an official taxi from the airport (45€ for 1 hour drive) The resort is really beautiful, you can find many tourist videos on YouTube. We had a clean room with aircondition and a big bed with mosquito net (to our surprise there was not a single mosquito in this area). The room had a balcony with a beautiful view on the jungle/garden area. WiFi is only in the lobby but sometimes you get a little signal in the room. But the internet is not the fastest. The whole staff in the resort was nice and helpful all the time. The food was good and the drinks were good and cheap :) There are two pools, one is quiet and a little hidden, the other big one is at the bar with music and animation. You can play darts, table soccer, beach volleyball, beach soccer and Boccia if you get bored. The best part of the resort was the beach! The resort beach area is separated from the beach by a small stone wall because of the tide. This was great because there you have a big secure area where you can leave everything and go swimming without worrying about your stuff. We had such a lovely time and we will definitely come back :)…
Actually, a good hotel, with the exception of the behavior of some employees of the service. I wanted to order 2 glasses of red wine, but the wine from the open bottle was already weak and tasteless. I asked for a bartender to open a new bottle, but here I intervened by Joy. She stated in gross form that the wine from the new bottle costs 4 €, and not 2 € per glass. She was very rude and unfriendly , as if I was guilty before her. I think she wouldn't contacted to the guests. Otherwise, the hotel is recommended for visiting.It is clean and good VFM.
Sadly this is my worst vacation, staff lack hospitality, racism from the black staff towards blacks(note we were the only blacks in the hotel a group of 28), they were very rude to us but weirdly enough they really treated the other white people well, food was limited to one cultural and sometimes they recycled food from the previous day some of us had food poisoning on day two the experience was just one that I would love to forget despite the money used. The hotel is still undergoing construction, WiFi is a mess. Pull up your game as a hotel and check the few rotten staff in your hotel staff since they are really selling your hotel short
The resort exceded our expectations. The check-in and advice by guest relations was professional, helpful and all round friendly. The room and bathroom was very clean. The bedroom was uncluttered and comfortably furnished. The little washing line on the balcony added comfort to the stay as we could hang our wet costumes up. The restaurant, pool and entertainment area are excellently laid out. As much as this resort is mostly frequented by Italians, it also caters to the South African guest.
