8/10 Very good

There were some little ants and I got bitten by them. And couldn’t sleep well because they are very itchy. Need to do more pest control, please

4/10 Fair

The room was old, and not so clean. It smelt musty and like dirty feet. The bed was 2 single beds pushed together with a hard edge lump where they joined. There was no view whatsoever, definitely not worth the money.

4/10 Fair

We arrived at check in to be told “we have upgraded you” to be then put in “reef view resort” which we arrived to our room that stunk like it hadn’t been used in a very long time. Also one of our guest were expected to sleep on the couch (not a pull out bed from the couch - literally a couch). Also not very happy with the cleanliness of the bathroom as all the grout was mouldy and still had hair stuck to the wall in the shower from previous guests. Staff were nice though.

Great location and definitely loved making use of the hammock provided to chill and relax. Only downside was a bird that lived close by that sounded like it was being strangled…frequently through the night.
