  • 2.0.Poor

    Smelly entrance, loud noise throughout the night

    Generally have an awesome time at the Crowne. This time was different as we were in a villa outside the hotel. The smell in the corridor was deplorable. We literally had to hold our breaths walking through the lobby of our villa (room 790). Aside from that, throughout the entire night there was this loud crackling static noise that kept waking me up (I assume this may be the air conditioner or something from upstairs), but I’d severely suggest this gets fixed before someone else uses the room.

    No children amenities working!!

    The service was great , the food not so great and over priced !! We were told to come back at 2pm so that my son could go on the train.We left the brewery early so he wouldn't miss out and waited there for ten minutes and couldn't get through to reception.We finally got through to the bar that put us through to someone to be told that the train ride and carousel weren't working. We then went to the kids arcade and found it closed and w were then told that one of the machines weren't working so they closed the whole arcade off ! We went there so my son could enjoy the amenties so this was a major disappointment! They then gave us a bottle of wine and my child a stuffed toy !! I wouldn't recommend going with kids and the stairs in the lobby are so steep and very dangerous!! The people staying next door were loud and had to be told twice to keep it down!! Its a nice place but check before you go if the amenities are working if you have kids! Pool was nice and the king room was roomy !!

    Nice short trip away.

    The villas are spacious and nice. Disappointing that there is no washing machine and dryer in the villa. There is a guest laundry. Nice resort. Check in was very slow and then the keycards were not activated ... annoying as had to walk quite a distance back to reception and wait again in a long queue. They need to hire more front staff. Reception hardly picks up phone Bfast was ok but nothing that special. Good activities for Kids including train ride.

    The Red Salt restaurant is excellent. Also, all staff were very well spoken and responsive. Our room was basically good, but the shower in the bathroom is an antiquated model with a push-pull knob for the water flow. It was difficult to operate. We advised the hotel of this. The TV was also limited - only free to air stations and 5 Fox Sports channels. No Sky News for example.
