6/10 Good

Nice pools but wouldn't start again
Had neighbours that were so loud offered to have connecting door unlocked if they insisted on making me part of their late and early morning conversations set so many alarms for their 6 am wake-up. Patio was locked and needed a key that was not provided to open. Bathroom was a bit tired but linens were nice. Wooden shutters on patio door useless for blocking out sunlight and kept on opening randomly.

4/10 Fair

Beach setting was nice. Room poor - bar fridge didnt work, was changed, second didnt work either. Very bad mould in aircon filter blowing directly onto bed. Carpet under and around bed stained. had trouble finding the USB ports, staff didnt know where they were. Had to get help to get TV going took sometime to connect. We were compensated for the TV issue, this was very much appreciated.
