Property condition


  • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

Very tired and unkempt with the deluxe villas having non-existent gardens - just lots of weeds. The unit was satisfactory for our needs - just. However it was extremely cold when we stayed and the heat pump didn't work......... luckily there were extra blankets we could pile on the bed to keep us warm. The fridge didn't work until the thermostat was wriggled a lot and then made an awful noise all night. Certainly not good value for money .

This property setting was sensational. The rooms a little tired, however, clean. On arrival I stepped outside the room and noticed the side window was open. As the wooden slat venetians were down, I did not notice this and the window would then have been left open all night. Unfortunately the towels had a strong smell of fried oil, so not sure where they are laundered.

  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Very tired looking, uncomfortable bed, old couches, curtains not closing properly, cracks in bathroom tiles, poor water pressure, hairdryer cord had exposed wires, and if want wireless have to pay for it. Very disappointing condition, because the few is amazing.
