Good 6.0
All the bells and whistles but lacks luster. Rooms spacious , clean and well equipped but overall the resort facilitites were not well presented. Staff seemed disinterested and the touches u would expect to find in a hotel this size just werent there. Seemed to be no one leading the ship and although we understood Covid restrictions were in place and nothing is the norm...but it felt that was being taken advantage of .staff at reception w particularly the evening staff were unhelpful and disinterested .

Very happy customers
Was a great place to stay at, my parnters parents now wont stay anywhere else, have already been back once since our first stay and now wanting to book again early in the new yr. We ate breakfasts and some dinners there and the food was lovely and service from staff delightful

Requested high floor ocean floor room. When we didn’t get it, the Reception said if we want to switch rooms just come back and he will happily switch it, which we did 5 mins later (as we were overlooking rooftops). He then denied saying he could change rooms and his colleague, without even looking or knowing our room type, said all rooms are taken. Very dated and there was patched and not painted holes in the walls.

a nice budget resort
A beautiful setting but experiencing some challenges associated with staffing during the pandemic and post pandemic... a lack of staff is impacting on lunch and meal services

Ok for overnight stay
Ok for an overnight stay, and nice to hear the waves at night....but rather dated and in desperate need of some TLC and an upgrade.

2-3 star experience at 4 star prices.
No wi fi, no AC on a hot night and no apologies. We called to request a late check out and/or some make up for this, nope. The hotel manager was not helpful and we were told basically "Nothing we can do". This is not worthy of 4 stars. We were on our baby moon and my wife was pregnant, unable to sleep well at night... Not off to a good start. Thankfully we only had 1 night here. Food at the restaurant was expensive (which is okay) but tasted horrid. The staff at the restaurant was lovely (only saving grace) and the property itself is very nice to take a walk or go to the beach (direct access). 2-3 star experience at 4 star prices.

Mouldy shower
Hotel location is Ok, not absolute beachfront, but just short walk to the beach and we have some filtered sea view from the balcony. However the bathroom was the biggest upset. A lot of black mould in the shower. Not acceptable for the 4star hotel.

The hotel needs modifications, very outdated. We booked the room with ocean view and we only got a glimpse of a wave. The bathroom needs a lot of work even a step in bath shower, which is dangerous and slippery.

Room had wet carpet, I reported it however no one ever came to look at it. Restaurant was in Covid mode but at least it was open and the food was ok
