Booked the apartments for my sisters hen party, 4 apartments in total, hotel was great in organising wime glasses in room etc, as i knew we had dinner at 6pm & the girls would have to get ready after the activity i rang the hotel in advance to confirm check in time which was 3pm, perfect as we would be arriving then, i decided to check everyone in as would be easier then 16girls in reception, arrived at 3:10pm & was told only 2 apartments were ready & other 2 would take another hour, was annoyed as this would put is back on time & stressed me out more trying to get everyone organised! But it happens & they were very busy! As i was walking to my apartment, 4 cleaners were standing outside chatting & having a cigarette & complaining in general... Not at all professional! A nice lady from reception then came running over to us at 4pm with the other keys... I then booked 2 mini buses for 6pm to go to town for dinner but they were 20mins late, in total we were 45mins late for our dinner reservation, thankfully they understood my stress! Cant fault the apartments in any way, they were lovely, clean & modern & very spacious! Breakfast buffet was perfect, service was great. Just had to knock off 1 star for the cleaning staff
