We were a family of 4 which included 2 small kids, when we checked in we found the house was not very clean, I was so disappointed I ended up cleaning the fridge etc and said to hell with this I did not come away to clean so I rang reception and they sent over a very nice girl called Michelle who addressed the issue. It was just a shame that this had to be done, there was a lot of hygiene issues eg stains on the carpets, dirty untensils in the kitchen and also there were a few maintenance issues which should be addressed eg paint work and skirting boards which should be replaced. There were 2 guys power hosing the following morning and thank god I was in the house as I had the windows opened upstairs who knows what would have happened, in normal circumstances hotels / resorts would inform the residents that this would be taking place. Also we went to the pool where I made sure that we all had our swim caps on and even had to buy one for the kids to discover the following day that there were a number of people in the pool in their boxer shorts and underwear with no hats !!!!!!!! the pool is not supervised (there are cameras at reception maybe they were not working this day hmmm ) We ate in the bar as the restaurant was closed (opened at weekends only) the service and staff there were excellent but could have had more variety on the menu eg sirloin steak / fillet of chicken (bacon and cabbage was the dish of the day on 2 nights we were told) I would question the standards of cleaning / servicing the houses at Avon Ri (The sofas were very dirty never moved and under the cushions terrible along with the legs of the coffee table underneath very dusty, shower heads very dirty and vents in bathrooms layered with a thick layer of dust - there for a while) Any way on a positive note the rooms were very spacious and the linen was clean tg.
