This place looked fantastic on the web site- I should have known it was too good to be true...
Firstly, it is situated way out of town, not close to anything.
It is advertised as "apartments" with cooking facilitites/kitchenettes but they are really just motel rooms with a microwave and kettle.
The worst part was that the rooms were so hot- well over 30 degrees, and SO stuffy- like airless ovens. There is no air con,. not even a fan.
The rooms we were given were downtairs, about 1 metre from the pool on the other side of the window (cheap glass, you could hear everything) So noisy. If you opened the window to let the air in, you had the noise from people drinking and splashing around the pool. it is meant to close in the evening, but it was not closed the night we were there.
When I asked the manager if we could move rooms to find some place cooler and quieter, he said there were no rooms available. This was not true- the place was almost empty (except for the people by the pool)
He was rude and could have cared less. We left.
