We had an unfortunate experience and hope that the team will make changes so that nobody has the same experience. The location is great; a walk away from the beach, shops and restaurants. The cleaning staff was friendly and kind. Unfortunately, our stay was not great from check in. We were allocated to a room and the key did not work. After reporting the key issues, we were then allocated to another room which had a noisy extractor fan and the generator that went on at midnight kept us up due to the noise. The hotel had scheduled for maintenance to take place just outside the room the next day. There was drilling, banging and grinding right outside our room. After a while (when we had raised our concerns) we were moved to another room in the afternoon. The room we were moved to was better but we felt robbed after the experience we had the first day/night. When checking out, we were then told that there was an outstanding balance (but we had paid before arrival). After querying this, it seemed that the systematic changes were not done when we were moved to another room, resulting in the outstanding balance but they were able to resolve it.
