Unhappy ozzie

Having read other people's previous experience I did not expect much but it was lower than my low expectations. Booked 2 rooms both rooms smelled of mildew and the mustiness. It gets worse. The bed had smell of sweat and whatever. The sheets had old blood stains and worse new blood stains. Shame on management. Such lovely location. A bit of hygiene would be good. Chris

So so

The room was bad in terms of the furniture and the facilities. Smelly room, toilet was spoilt, after flush, the water keeps flowing out and couldn't retain the water for the next use. When call operator, the maintenance staff came to have a look and it seems fixed, but the same problem comes back after the next use.. Really need to refurbish the room! It's old looking and not value for money!

Great place except service

It's alright except the service when check in.. They keep forgetting or ignoring our request... Have to wait until 4pm even though check in time was 3pm. My door card sensor ran out of battery and couldn't get in until technician shows up. My sister in law ask for blanket but was given towels. No floor towel given also. But the pool, beach and kids club was fun for my son!
