I wrote this review in June 2009 following a short stay at Casa Bliss. It was subsequently removed by Trip Adviser as I apparently missed a reminder email to confirm it was my review. It seems odd that you have to respond to reminders to keep your reviews on the site. Maybe it is because it is a negative review. As a solicitor and someone who has been to some pretty good places to stay in both the UK, Europe and the rest of the world I stand by my review. In my view, and we are all entitled to our opinions, this is not a five star place to stay.
"On arrival we were met by the owner's son, who was extremely welcoming and friendly. We had a nice welcome pack and he kindly offered to run us into town, if we needed anything. Casa Bliss is a considerable distance from Alora (too far to walk even for a young couple like us in our early 30's) although there are two fairly decent restaurants at the bottom of the track. We stayed in Rose Cottage which was very disappointing. We had to borrow a toaster off our neighbours to toast the bread we had been left in our welcome pack. The cottage is only equipped with a microwave, so is not ideal for self catering. The cups, plates and cutlery were stained and dirty; the shower did not produce anything other than a steady drip of water; the towels did not match and one had a hole; the toilet stank, as did the toilets in the other two cottages; the TV, Sky box and remote had had something sticky spilt on them that had not been cleaned; the glass coffee table was so badly smeared you could write your name on it; the wax candle on the outside table had a rotting tennis ball stuck in it; and we had to step over dog mess by our sun loungers. Casa Bliss is no cheaper than other places in Alora, so it is not simply a case of you get what you pay for. Casa Bliss has the potential to be a good place to stay on holiday, the pool in nice and the views lovely. However, the owners need to invest a lot more in the facilities and time in cleaning the cottages before anyone should consider staying there."
