The location was great, rooms were very clean and had a TV, dining table, kitchen, spa and fridge. The walls were very thin though between the room next door, and we could hear everything especially when they had the TV or spa on until very late.

POSITIVES: My overall stay was enjoyable and staff were nice. Lovely pool area, spacious room and very clean. Good amenities. NEGATIVES: The roomtype I booked which was a luxury king spa, showed on the website the balcony overlooking the pool, however when we arrived at our room, we were told that none of these room types have a pool view. I found this quite misleading and was dossappointed. I also saw on the website the property has a cocktail bar and restaurant. Once we arrived we were told it was closed for our entire stay for renovations. I feel this should have been highlighted upon booking on the website for those dates. Cook top plates were very difficult to use and not user friendly at all which was frustrating but staff were willing to assist at any time. Our room was a self contained apartment and despite the property offering a daily service, they wouldn't wash any dishes we used of; cups, glasses, plates, cuterly etc...i feel this should have been part of the daily service. We also had to leave our room daily which was not ideal if we wanted a full service of changed bed linen etc. Service times were from 11am -2pm but one of the girls came knocking and pressured is to leave the room a fair bit before 2pm as she was finished all her other rooms and our room was her last to do, so therefore she wanted us out. We are supposed to be on a relaxing holiday but we felt the housekeeping staff were dictating our morning schedule. Overall a 7/10
