1/5 Terrible

Traveled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Appalling value - staff tried their best but seriously understaffed - bathroom mat stained yellow, toilet and floors dirty when we checked in. Safe broken, towel rack broken, floor boards coming up. Quality equipment in gym but filthy - floor littered, broken sockets, broken water dispenser. Normal drinks menu given at dinner but only Tiger beer and a white wine available - no other drinks on sale in the hotel. Potentially a stunning beach but littered and uncared for with debris everywhere. Breakfast was unbelievably poor and the few items stone cold. Given the current COVID pandemic hygiene and cleanliness shocking. Cut our losses and left.
