3/5 Okay

Traveled with family and small children
The location is great, the room itself was very small for a 2 bedroom, we had a toddler with us and the 2nd bedroom was basically a glass box, it was impossible to keep the light out at night so when our daughter went to bed at 7 we had to turn all the lights off and couldn’t have the tv without creating a rave in her room! Pool area is great and plenty to eat nearby.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness
We had a lovely stay here but there was no communication that the pool was under construction, so half of the decking was off limits meaning there was little room for all the guests to sit. The construction happening while we were swimming was ok, but should have been communicated prior to our arrival as it was a pre planned upgrade of the decking. The bathrooms also don’t have fans which was odd for the climate as nothing dried.

Liked: Amenities
Disliked: Cleanliness
The positives of this place at that the grounds and pool are stunning. Unfortunately it lacks ammenities you might expect at a resort such as a bar or restaurant but there is plenty other places to eat and drink in palm cove. As for the room, it was filthy. The sheets had old blood stains on them, the bath tub was stained, the shower screens full of lime scale and dirt, the kitchen was dirty, the fridge was dirty with old milk left in it so unfortunately would not stay here again.
