6/10 Good

I booked based on ratings for a 3-night stay. Rooms were ok, but my bedding was rather musty. Television didn’t work, and I asked for that to be remedied right away. Never did get someone to look at it, even after 3 requests. Plumbing ventilation was poor, so every now and again it would wreak in the bathrooms. Coffee maker did not work. Meals were decent, but overall underwhelming. A portion of the sea wall at the property was damaged, so a good chunk of the property was closed off. All the ‘little’ things sorta added up enough in my head to leave an informative review. Service personnel were great overall, so that was nice to see. Wi-Fi was good. All in all, I feel that this is a property that needs some TLC, and perhaps a slightly better menu.

We were very disappointed. The staff was very unfriendly. Made us feel like everything we asked for was a choir on their part. We chose this location before it was "kid friendly" we were told there was a kid program, there was nothing set up for her to do. We have a 12 year old, and there were no daily activities for her to do, which was okay, but it was false advertisement. They didn't even have the water trampoline which she was looking very forward to. The "sister locations for restaurants, she was only allowed at 1 of them, the other are over 18. There are birds all over the on-site restaurant, flying all over the dishes and food, the staff does nothing to keep them off. The wall at the beach is broken and roped off. They do have the water sports which are advertised and the men that run them are very helpful.
