We have stayed here on one other occasion and had a great room with a fantastic view. Unfortunately this was not so, this time. The Malibu is advertised with all rooms having a view of the ocean from the balcony but we learned this is not the case. We were in Unit 5 and whilst we had a very small courtyard at the front of the unit ( not mentioned in any accommodation guide), there was no view or privacy as it was the access point for the pool and BBQ area. The lap pool runs along the perimeter wall of the Unit 5 and on the first 2 nights of our stay the pool pump motor ran throughout the night. Let me tell you loud constant noise and vibration can drive you crazy when sleep is deprived! We spoke to the manager after the first sleepless night and only after a very late night call to his mobile on the second night was the pump motor turned off. Lack of privacy and noise from both the pool and the BBQ at your doorstep also interfered with the holiday, not to mention the constant drops through the garbage shoot from the 8 floors above, which hit the skip bin directly under the floor of Unit 5. It took us a day or two to work out what the noise was. The units are being refurbished and not before time. There was no compensation from either the management or the website we booked our accommodation through for our troubles. It is a new site that we haven't used before and we won't book through them again, that's for sure.
