My wife and I spent 3 weeks in Celebration Suites in September 2012. We were a bit sceptical as we normally stay in our West Gate Lakes timeshare, but they could not accommodate us for these 3 weeks,
I used tripadvisor and the Celebration Suites webpage to make my final decision and opted to include the continental breakfast..
When we arrived the reception staff were very friendly and helpful. I happily paid $10.75 for the hire of pots/crockery and cutlery as this was the cost for the 3 weeks, (it is a one of price irrespective of length of stay). It was delivered to the suite within 5 minutes of us booking in.
We were give the option of a ground or first floor suite, poolside or non-poolside and an option of which side ot the road we wanted.
We opted for non-poolside, ground floor in building G - which was adjacent to the Old Town.
On entering the suite we were pleasantly surprised at how spacious it was - it really could accommodate 6 people.
Living room with bed settee couch, coffee table and 36" TV, housed in a unit with drawers and doors to cover the TV when not in use, there was also a pull-down double bed. An air conditioning unit allowed individual settings.
Kichen had table and 4 chairs, large refrigerator, with small freezer on top, a 2 ring stove, microwave, coffee maker and ample cupboard storage
Toilet had vanity bar with sink, full width mirror, shaving point and hairdrier.There was an integrated bath and shower. Complimentary soap, shampoo and conditioner were also there. There were ample hand and bath towels
Bedroom had King sized double bed, bedside tables with lamps, a large double wardrobe, a set of drawers wth a small TV built into it, a vanity bar with sink, mirror and light.. There was a set of french doors leading out on to our small patio. An airconditioning unit as in the living room,
The suite was fully carpeted with the exception of the kichen and barhroom.
The decor, fixtures and fittings were spotlessy clean if a bit worn, A redecoration and upgrading will be needed in the next couple of years.
Continental breakfast was on the other side of the street and consisted of choosing 3 items per person from a large selection that included yoghourt, orange juice, fruit bars, peanuts, cashewnuts vaious pastries, bananas and as much coffee or tea as you wanted. You could either sit in or take it back to your suite, which is what most people did. The young lady serving was bilingual in Spanish and English and had a very warm and welcoming personality.
The room had maid service everyday (A feature that other accommodation does not offer).
The pools were beatifully kept and maitained, They were cleaned everyday as well as a large selection of pool towels were available and renewed daily.
Being right next to the Old Town was great - we could walk over to the shops, restaurants and Saturday Vintage Car Cruise. There was also the amusements,
The staff were very efficient - for example one morning we had no hot water, I inromed maintainance and within 10 minutes they had a plumber on site to rectify the fault.
Weboth like toast and when I asked at reception they immediately provided one free of charge.
It was vey noisy on the Saturday nights when the Car Cruise was on - this lasted till 2AM. If this is a problem for you don't stay in G block.
The pool could have been warmer. Refreshing once you got over the initial shock.
The Celebration Suites offers great value for money. It was clean, warm and comfortable but could do with an upgrade.. I would definitely recommend it and use it again if needs be. It is not up to the standard of West Gate Lakes but it does not pretend it is.
