1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The owner/manager/staff were nice. That's it unfortunately. Originally lost our booking. The room was awful. Dust and cobwebs everywhere. Cupboard door unusable/hanging. Paint peeling. Shower filthy. Toilet didn't flush and needed a bucket to fill it. Water came out sideways from shower taps! Pool green, smelly and unswimmable. Sadly not what we had expected. We know it was a cheaper place and wasn't expecting 5 star, but that room should not be used for guests!
