Would need to be desperate to stay here again
Probably one of my worst check in experience ever. The communication, the reluctance to assist and just don’t care attitude of hospitality workers seems shocking.

What a joke!
We spent a family weekend here, with 2 couples sharing a 2 bed, 2 bath suite. The rooms were clean but very poorly equipped - remote controls didn’t work, there was no patio furniture & only one 2 seater couch for a 4 sleeper unit, hardly any crockery and glasses on the kitchen & whatever they was was from odd sets! Also no bedside lamps in bedrooms, threadbare towels and a light that shone all night outside the 2nd bedroom with no blind to block out the light. We didn’t sleep a wink until it went off with a timer at 5am. To top it all, there is no service directory and no telephone to call somebody in charge to get help. The general line which we googled was not answered when we called. There could have been a fire and nobody from “Management” would have been reachable!! What a joke!!

I booked a room with a queen bed. The day before my date I received a call from a lady who asked to move us to another room coz the couple that was suppose to vacate extended. I said it is ok provided it is a similar room. she said it is bigger. I got to the room we found a double bed in one room and a 2 twin beds in another room. Honestly, it don't make sense to me that her idea of bigger is two separate rooms. i didnt have time to call her cos I was there for a function and I was already late.
