At $140 during the wet season this place offers decent family accommodation. At $280 during the tourist season I would be screaming foul!
We checked in at 4am after a long international flight and found the key no worries. First thing I had to do though was walk to the 24 hour petrol station to buy toilet paper as there was none at all in the apartment. Not the sort of thing you want to do 4am when very tired.
The place was clean enough but I can see why some people do not like it. It was a pain having to always try and find a staff member to ask for things like toilet paper, bin liners, dishwashing liquid etc etc.
The worst thing though was the drunk yobbos staying in other apartments. A group of about 15 (mainly men) took over the pool for the entire 3 day stay. They drank and drank and drank from early morning until late at night. My little kids could only have one swim when there was a lull in their drinking one afternoon for a few hours.
It was a long weekend and no staff at all in reception so nothing could really be done.
