Response from Ameen R, General Manager at Palm Dune Beach Lodge
Responded 28 Oct 2017
Hi Leslie thank you for your feedback, we are saddened to hear that your stay with us was unpleasant. The unit that was reserved for you was done through our bookings system on bookings dot com. We did however contact you prior to confirming your booking to advise you that there will be a wedding taking place over the weekend of your stay. Upon your arrival we did offer to move you and you declined. Unfortunately with weddings there is always some noise which is why we keep guests not attending the wedding away from the noise as much as possible. We had housekeeping check the curtain - thank you for bringing this to our attention - we did find a small tear. We also found that ravens have built their nests on the roof eves hence the sound in the ceiling it was definitely not rats, our resort is treated every month by ECOPEST I checked on the cleanliness of the restaurant and found 2 chairs with sand on the legs, staff responsible for the cleanliness of the restaurant has been reprimanded. We thank you for informing us with regards to all your short comings during your stay, we value your comments as this helps us improve our services.
