Poor service
Room 408. We have booked the room for 2 days, 17 March to 19 March 2023. The room was unfortunately not clean and we reported the matter to reception. There was for instance long black hair lying around in the bathroom and on the towels.There was a big cockroach. The people at reception were very helpful and friendly and the 2nd day the room was neat and clean. The only problem was that there were no towels at all in the room from the Saturday. After reporting the problem to tel no 1300 and 1301 nothing happened. We spoke to people as late as 21h00 and 21h30 and was told that clean towels had been delivered to the hotel and will be disbursed to our room. This did NOT happen and we could not even take a shower or wash ourselves.The reality is that not only was the service poor but we have been told a lie and a promise not fulfilled. There was also no Peaceful Sleep for the mosquitos in our room, apart from the fact that the aircon was not working. When we checked out we requested to report the matter to the Manager on duty. We were told that there was no Manager on duty and we made a list of our issues on a piece of paper provided by the reception official. We thought that the Manager would at least phone us to discuss. A weekend that we were looking forward to, turned out to be a very big disappointment.

Great stay
Our long weekend stay was excellent and the ambience on the terrace was festive although on Saturday it was full to the brim with day visitors and we had to drive to the nearest mall to have our meal as the restaurant seating only opens at 18h00. The food was excellent.

Dirty and disgusting
Check-in went smooth. Hotel room was very dissapointing. The room information stated a sofa bed, that was not a sofa bed. It was 2 chairs pulled together, I had 2 kids that slept very uncomfortable. We book for 4 people, room only had 2 towels, the WHOLE 4 days of our stay. I phoned for extra towels and NEVER received them. The carpets in the room was disgusting! Dirty and not vaccuumed! 2nd day, new towels were dirty... we were told on checking in that our room includes breakfast, we paid for every breakfast and tried to double charge us on day of check out. This "Resort" is not family friendly, there is not much to do with kids. We drove to next town everyday to enjoy activities with them. I am very dissapointed as this place is advertised on Jacaranda daily.
