Surfers International
Reviewed 8 July 2011

PRO: Fantastic view of the beach and a great pool and spa.

CONS: plug was the wrong size, fridge door was broken, there was a mouldy and unsanitary looking hole in the bathroom wall. We asked for someone to have a look at it and although they did take a look they said they couldn't do anything about it because they don't have a cover for it. The oven was in Fahrenheit so for the first few nights we had to convert it to celcius on the laptop. The microwave was also ancient, which took 10mins instead of 3.5.

The room was very tacky as the owners had left price stickers on various objects. the wardrobe door was broken, the windows and door had a disgusting sea mould on them, making the windows extremely hard to open and the outdoor table and chairs were dirty.

Room Tip: avoid level 16

Our room was "upgraded" to a two bedroomed apartment, which had scuff marks on the walls, a filthy fan, mouldy lamp shades,enamel peeling off the bath..very disappointed and will not return. Good position, lovely views, only thing that kept us there..

We paid a lot of money through Flight Centre (never again) to stay here and it was a dump. Backpackers at best. There was no airconditioning and no fans outside the bedrooms. The stove didnt work and the dishwasher was over 20 years old. We had to ask for pillows and a blanket for the 4th person as there were only enough for 3. It was too hot to close the doors and the noise from the nightclub below kept us awake until 4am, then the beach constructions started at 6. The carpet was sticky with burns in it, you couldnt see out of the windows for dirt, there were lipstick kisses all over the balcony door, the bathroom was mouldy and the fittings and fans were covered in black dust. We asked about other rooms and were told 'they are pretty much the same". The fire alarm was disconnected, and when I told them, they sent another one up but I had to fit it. I lived in a nicer flat in the 80's. The spa was broken for some of our stay. The kids loved the pool and location but we ended up tired, hot and sleep deprived.
