Staff & service




Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Disliked: Staff & service, room comfort
No interest in the guests it seems
We were visiting after peak season and there didn't seem to be a lot of other guests. Staff were friendly but seemed a bit bored and unmotivated at times. The facilities could be better maintained. The shower drained very slowly and the TV setup was hardly usable and looked jumbled together. There seemed to be a rule to never replenish consumables in the bathroom leaving us to have to ask when we ran out and the shower didn't seem to be part of the cleaning routine. Overall, we would have considered everything satisfactory if not for the fact that the airport transfer was stuffed up and they just didn't care. We had them book the transfer with Evergreen (same owner I believe) for our early morning flight and paid for it via the hotel. The transfer never turned up and the security guard had no idea what to do about it. We ended up having to flag down a local bus which wasn't easy this early and pay a second time. Our attempts via email to recover the cost for the transfer were first ignored, on follow-up the general manager told us (via email) that the accounts department would refund the amount. The amount was never refunded and further follow-ups were ignored again. Given that they had booked the transfer on our behalf (and with what seems to be a sister company), we feel that they were responsible to handle the refund for us. Had it not been for this bad parting experience, we probably would have given higher ratings.

Needs improvement
The staff were very friendly but the service was slow and disappointing. The kitchen ran out of a lot of items on the menu including beer! The complex needs a bit of attention to maintainence too.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family, Travelled with group
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
there was a group of us staying 12 in total, we were the only ones there. The room was very basic and heat pump dripping. It took over half after ordering breakfast and that was only toast on occasions. on day two they ran out of beer, and the next morning there was no fruit juice. Afternoon snacks were supposed to be available and when ordering a toasted cheese sandwich at 3:00pm was told that the chef had gone home. overall the staff were polite but there was not enough of them

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Nice waterfront views. The towels need to be changed on a regular basis, and the bathroom essentials like soap and shampoo need to be replaced every day.
