Nice place but lacking services and maintenance. Room wasn't cleaned properly, lights flickering, breakfast not included, gym equipment is laughable. Pool is nice but probably won't get to use it as we have been moved to the Oaks due to complaining.

It pains me to write this as I often leave very positive reviews but we feel we have arrived at a completely different hotel to what we booked. We have stayed at some of the best 5 star resorts in the world (see other reviews) and this is far from meeting the standards of a 4 star hotel let alone a five star resort. This is a three star hotel with pool at best, a lot of work needs to be done and don’t be surprised of the stars tumble here if the problems below are not addressed. Before I get into the draw backs of staying here I will address the positives. The rooms are very nice, clean and modern. Bathrooms are large and clean Food in the restaurant is okay. The negatives: Rundown grounds - the grounds have not been properly maintained and not up to the standards of a five star resort Dirty pool - not once have I seen someone cleaning the pool. The bottom is full of dead leaves Cold pool - the pool isn’t heated and icy cold so could not enjoy it Small breakfast - we paid extra for breakfast on booking.com and surprised by how small the portions are. Not ideal if you want a good meal to start your day. Food also needed a lot of seasoning but may have been personal preference. The couple next to us had to go to their room and get a banana as they were still hungry after breakfast Advertising breakfast as a dollar on arrival - felt very conned here. I paid an extra $50 a day for 2x breakfasts on booking.com only to have those who booked the through the same website without breakfast getting it added for just $1 a day. Very cheated here. Run by back packers - I appreciate the town is seasonal but there is a certain standard of service one expects from a 5 star resort and it’s not to be found here. Run by foreign backpackers with no or little hospitality experience. No knowledge on local attractions or cafes - as this resort is serviced by seasonal backpackers when we asked about local restaurants and attractions they could not help us or even ask their superiors for help. Woeful. Kids around - advertised as a kid free adult only resort. Definitely not the case and was one of the reasons we chose to be here Wet sun beds - sun bed cushions not taken in each evening so they were soaking wet and stained when we wanted to use them Closed restaurant for function on our stay. No notice - could not eat at the restaurant one evening due to a function. Dinner spots are severely limited on cable beach so we went hungry that evening No spa - spa is advertised on booking.com but it’s closed Gym equipment old and broken - unusable equipment in a tiny room. Not even worth having No robes - no robes in the rooms. This should be a staple of any hotel Dirty balcony, balcony furniture cheap plastic , not 5* - our pool side room came equip with cheap plastic chairs and the floor is dusty and dirty No carry up of bags - 5 star resort and no bag service to the room or from the bus. Painfully amateur No room service Only one pool - advertised as having multiple pools - not the case anymore, has been filled in. Balcony didn’t lock - security issue and shows lack of maintenance Very loud leaf blower every morning for an hour - not a relaxing experience Shop - nothing in it except a couple of hats and sofas I am writing this still at the resort as I am so disappointed with this hotel. I now know the resort went bankrupt a few m on the ago and is now run by new people. I just hope this fix this resort up and make it five star again. Failing that, drop two stars and the word resort and sell the service for what it is. Very much a case of overpromising and massively under delivering here
