3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Nice Place for a Family Trip but with caveats
We were warmly welcomed at reception and given our keys etc. When we entered the property it was fairly clean but not to a very good standard (debris on carpet, dirt/sand marks on the lounge etc). Resort grounds are great and the kids had a great time at the Jetty and exploring. The air conditioning worked intermittently, we were advised that it had issues and they would repair asap but not over the weekend as it was a public holiday. The temperature in the townhouse was quite cold, especially at night and the beds only had a thin sheet and blanket with no additional blankets provided, on a few nights we were very cold when the A/C wouldn't turn on. I then tried to do a load of washing and found out the drier didnt work, it would spin but no air was being circulated. Upon checkout we advised the reception of our issues and they just brushed them off, almost as if we'd broken the appliances ourselves. At double what we would normally pay for a 3 night stay (cant quote dollar figure due to policy) i was expecting better value for money and everything to work, or at least be repaired at some time during our stay. Would only come back if the price was significantly lower. For this kind of money better places are available.
