The folk at the reception were rude, the kids were chased out of the pool at 6:05pm for being noisy, and the trampoline was broken. Nothing positive to say about this place apart from the location which is very convient and outside the things they managers can mess up.

I'm sure readers will respect that as owners we look for the enjoyment of all guests but there are unfortunately times when visitors forget to respect the needs of others. Unsupervised children in our pool area is both dangerous and allows activity to happen that other guests dislike, such as squealing. Our policies on noise, supervision and 1 person at a time on a trampoline will be considered quite sensible by future guests. Parents play an important role in supervising their children and this must remain the case when on all motel sites around the world. Thank you for reminding all review readers of their expectations so that they know they will be able to enjoy our facilities on their visit.

uncomfortable, old, ratty carpets and shocking bed.. I am sure there would be somewhere better to stay.
I felt sorry for the young girl at the local information center who recommend it, as I think some people that had time would return to complain. we left before they opened or else we would have let her know.

Told by my parents that if you don't have something nice to say be quiet but got to say i couldn't recommend this venue.
Proprietor was friendly enough and was booked on recommendation from tourist information staff but don't go.

As others have said, the lady on the front desk is super rude. Any issues you bring to her attention will be met with hostility and heaven forbid you ring the doorbell at the front office even though there is no sign suggesting not to.

Be aware that even if your booking says the room has a spa in the room you shouldn't expect it to be there when you arrive. Apparently it is within their rights to move you to a room without a spa and not even advise you before your arrive. Yeah right. Expect no compensation for this bait and switch either.

Other than the issues above, the room was acceptable if you just need somewhere to put your head for the night.

Semi expensive for Palmy but we liked that it had kitchen facilities for making breakfast and dinner. Nice to have a swimming pool too. Not much interaction with owners so can't comment on that like the other guests have. Would most likely stay here again if I couldn't find another deal elsewhere.
