  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Unit 168 at this resort is the filthiest place that we have ever stayed We do not recommend staying here. A very bad experience We have asked for a full refund.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Great stay, comfortable but found the bedroom very hot and stuffy. Unfortunately there is no security or screen to the bedroom and although a lovely breeze when open, no security being on ground floor we couldn’t keep it open! This made it hard to sleep as do not like constant ceiling fan on all night. I would only stay again in winter or if can open bedroom door to air. Good nights sleep is vital

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Being able to walk directly onto the beach without crossing a road etc without having to wear shoes. Unfortunately we had to shut doors and windows to keep out the smell of cigarette smoke from other units. Being hot we then had to put on the airconditioning for our comfort, when we could have had fresh breezes from outside. Shower over spa bath is not good for older guests. This needs to be known before people make bookings.
