We stayed at the pool resort for five nights and upon arrival the staff member at the counter was extremely helpful and very friendly, great first impressions! We have a seven month old baby so the swim-up apartment was perfect for us, we could go for a swim and our baby could sleep/play and we could keep an eye on her, just what we needed! The apartment itself was a decent size and it had most the things you'd need for self catering, the furnishings were of a good standard as well!
There were however a few minor areas of detail that if they were fixed would make the pool resort one of the best resorts we've stayed at!
The first moan is the general cleanliness of our apartment, the floors were dirty, there was dust all over the place, the bathroom looked like it needed a good scrub with some bleach and the outside area was full of dried up bird poo, not nice!
The second gripe was the lack of certain things in the apartment, such as decent sized frying pan (we had to buy one as the one provided could just about fit a fried egg in it). There was no hair dryer, no tumble dryer and a clothes rack that would only hold four towels so we couldn't get everything dry! A much larger clothes rack would of been perfect and the mop was in desperate need of a new sponge!
Our final issue was the privacy, there wasn't any from the neighboring apartments. The slatted wood fencing would be much better being a closed off fence, it feels like everyone can see what everyone's doing and saying.
This isn't a bad review about the resort, we had a fantastic time and we would definitely go back as we'll as recommend it to friends and readers of this review. If the owners do read this then it's just a few things that we think would make it that little bit better!
