2/10 Poor

They gave us our room and then told us to pack again as they made a mistake of giving us the wrong room. We had already unpacked and expected us to repack and move again, which we said we were not prepared. They did not give us Water in our room for the 1st two days. They then gave us botted water but did not have openers to open the bottle. so was not able to drink water. We had to go to the Bar to get water and put it our own bottle. The 2nd day we did not get any towel in our room till 4pm. how do we go the the Beach or swimming pool with these towels. to add to insult the next day they brought torn towel for us to us. The phone in the room never worked, so what ever we needed we had to go all the way to the reception to request for it. This was very inconvenient.

Room cleanliness not satisfactory
Staff are friendly but seem to be overwhelmed. Instead of availing gloves at serving stations for guests to serve themselves, they insisted on staff serving each guest which resulted in longer queues at serving stations and this could also be the reason why they were fewer chefs manning cooking stations which also resulted in longer queues. They seem to prioritise vegetarian food and hence variety for no vegetarian is poor. On getting to our room we found stained pillow cases and the bed and pillows had hair despite waiting for more than an hour for the room to be ready. The bathroom walls had grime, meaning they are not scubbed regularly. and our room floor was always grainy and had hair even after cleaning by the room service staff.
