This place is a dump- dirty rooms, whiney residents and crap location.
I arrived at this place with my wife and 2 children and was shocked at how much of a dive this place is.
On the outside it isn't too bad to look at, with a nice BBQ area and a jetty plus a small swimming pool, a spa, a sauna and a rundown tennis court.
The rooms on the inside were filthy- dirty carpet, dirty couches and dirty beds. There are bugs in the bed that sting you and leave you with itchy sores. Despite washing the linen repeatedly it did not get rid of the problem.
The rooms are a good size, however DON'T STAY HERE IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN. The windows are low and have no fly screens so a child could easily fall out and the balconies have flimsy railings which a child could easily squeeze through.
As there is no air con, you have to leave the windows open but because there are no fly screens you get eaten alive by the mosquitoes as well as the bed bugs.
There are people who live in these holiday apartments and constantly complain. My wife and I were abused by a resident for daring to sit on the balcony and enjoy an evening coffee- this was at 10pm.
The residents complain about everything we spoke to one family whose children were abused for making noise while in the pool- at 2pm!!!!!
They have parking under the building but this is a nightmare- parking spots are allocated to units but beware the owner of the unit may want the spot for themself even though you are renting it and if you park there they threaten to tow your car.
The accomodation is not cheap in comparison with other properties, in fact friends of ours stayed at a complex less than 50 metres away and enjoyed a complex which had clean rooms, with air con, brand new furniture, fresh linens and cable TV for less money than we paid.
A group of singles looking for somewhere to crash may enjoy this place but anyone else should stay away.
