Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I booked online as I thought it would be nice to get a place with a pool for the kids. The room was small and very dusty. I constantly felt like I was breathing in dust. Which was not good for the kids allergies. We went up to the pool which was an ok size but felt untidy. The spa was empty and dirty with finish at the bottom of it. As I pulled the sheets back to get into bed, there was dry blood on them. Very disgusting especially in these Covid times as goes to show they really aren’t going over and above to clean the rooms. I called the front desk and the only saving grace is that they let us room next door. It was about 8.30pm at night with two kids. But luckily the new room felt a little cleaner and we were able to get some sleep and head out early. No room service or food on site until 6pm. Didn’t bother to try the breakfast as thought it would be another disappointment.

Roof top pool and terrace were great. Room smelt musky and fan on a/c was very loud. en-suite shower was disappointing as was fact that wine glasses weren't matching. Bed sheet was also too small for the mattress. It's the little details!
