Outdated and rundown

Several guests say that while their suite was clean and well-appointed, they found the furnishings and fittings to be a little out of date. There are comments about different maintenance issues and broken items, but overall these opinion are rare - most guests are very positive about the resort.


Unusual check in procedure

A number of reviewers found the check-in procedure for this resort to be a little unorthodox, though it was not a problem per se. According to reports, suites here are privately owned and therefore, each has its own key kept in the dedicated key room. There was rarely a person at reception but the process of calling the number indicated and locating the key is usually smooth.


Few staff members and no housekeeping

This resort is designed as a budget, self-contained option where costs are kept low by employing a limited number of staff and keeping housekeeping to a minimum. Guests were mostly fine with this aspect but warn it is not a luxury establishment.
