My wife and I just spent a 10 day honeymoon at the Muri Beach Club Hotel.
We arrived from New Zealand at approx 3am,upon being taken to our room having had a long day I wanted a drink,there was nothing in the mini bar not even water.
There was meant to be a bottle of bubbly in our room which we didnt recieve until asking 2 days later.
I agree that there should be no smoking in hotel rooms but there,you cannot even smoke on the balcony or verandah and yet you can smoke by the pool on the beach and at the out door dining area on the beach.
The swimmimg pool was dirty at one end and you could see the mould against the tiling on the walls.
We met a lovely couple from England who were well travelled and they also agreed with my comments above and what is to follow.
The evening meals at the point restaurant are probably the worst I have ever experienced,on our last evening the 4 of us tried the sunday Buffet,it doesnt take much effort to cook a pork chop but the two I ordered were quarter of an inch thick chared and dry we were beyond the point of complaining.
I always thought a Buffet was help yourself to all you want it was limited to the extent that one of our party couldnt even get a plate and by the time he did there was very little in the way of hot potatoes or even salads.
The staff are very good and friendly and I dont think you could put the blame on any of them .
There is definitley a problem with the management who are ment to control the running of the hotel and ensure standards are met and that quality is the number one priority.
Aside from a very sparse conternental Breakfast we ate at other restuarants on all but two nights.On one particular night the theme in the point restaurant was Mongolian,there were 4 people in the restuarant dining,surely the management must ask them selves why the takings are so low.
The location at this hotel is wonderful,the beach Idyllic and the hotel modern but I think all in all at the moment you could call it an upholstered sewer.
