Stayed here for schoolies in November 2013. Will never recommend this place to anyone If they want an enjoyable stay.
The only positive I could think of was the location. Right on the beach.
We arrived the first day, the manager checked us in, gave us a key, we opened the room, it was the keys to someone else's room!!!
When we finally got to our room, it was dirty!! The floors were so dirty like they hadn't even been vacuumed for months. We had asked for 2 single beds, but were given a double.
There was no chairs or ashtray on the balcony. So I went down to reception and asked the manager
for chairs and an ashtray. He told me that there was no ashtrays in the apartment and just to use a empty bottle...... He said they would bring chairs up within an hour. 3 hours later no chairs, went down and asked for them. He said they would be up that night.
I kept asking for chairs... WE NEVER GOT OUR CHAIRS! This made me so angry because I just wanted to sit out on the balcony (very dirty, covered in cigarette butts and there was broken glass and an old window frame) and look at the view.
The manager was rude to me on multiple occasions, all because I was asking for chairs that we should of had! He allowed his very young children to crawl around the floor in reception... At the entrance to the reception there was a child proof gate.
It just had a horrible and dirty feel to the whole place. Definitely wasn't what we expected for our schoolies week, when we paid so much money. Some of my other friends paid less money and got so much better accommodation than us. Such a let down!
At the end of the week, as a condition to get our bond back we had to thoroughly clean the room. We even had to vacuum the room. It was cleaner the day we left, than it was the day we arrived.
Will never stay here again! If you want a relaxing, enjoyable schoolies or holiday, Do not stay here. You will be very disappointed. Only stay here as a last resort!!!!!
