Our group checked into two en-suite rooms. The first smelled so much of mold that it was impossible to remain in the room for more than two seconds. The same room also had an air conditioning unit that made a loud drone. The staff did allow this room to be changed.
Our room did not initially have the same moldy smell but overnight the smell came through the air conditioning unit. The pillow cases also smelled not just moldy but actually rotten. As other reviews have noted, the beds are covered in plastic. The floors are filthy and the bathroom isn't exactly clean.
The pool is tiny and the upstairs bar staff & atmosphere are on the aggresive side. We could not wait to check out of that place. If you check out before noon you get a refund - the best thing about this place! Oh and for pretty much the same money you can then check into the Crowne Plaza. The Crowne Plaza are very used to getting escapees from Maleluca - they even gave us complimentary drinks vouchers to help us get over the experience...
