Just come back from the worst place I have ever had the misfortune to stay at, the Halomy!
The accommodation has been left to deteriorate over the years and is now in a run down and shabby condition throughout. There is not one positive thing I can say about the condition of the accommodation and given that I am a Building Inspector by profession, I would hope that my free appraisal of the accommodations condition should not be taken lightly.
The Reception area is shabby and has seen better days. Lights not working, entrance doors not closing and aircon units damaged and not working.
Paths not illuminated and gardens now full of weeds although they did get a lawn mower out at 10pm to start cutting the weeds outside my apartment!!!
My apartment, externally dirty and shabby, paint peeling and old and no deadlock to the front door, just a bathroom privacy lock! My friends key to his apartment would open my front door! Outside lights not working and glazing to over panels painted. Shabby curtains and rails, the most uncomfortable bed ever- I stayed in 126, incase you're wondering which apartment but it makes no odds, they are all equally as bad!! Aircon not working, toilet constantly filling with water, shower screen broken, shower base broken, furnishings stained , water sometimes black!!! No plugs, fridge broken, cleaned my car with better rags than the so called towels they supplied!! Lights not working and tiles to floor cracked and sharp edges!!
Food absolutely horrendous , luckily universal food chains operate in town so lived on Big Macs !!!
Drink all local crap and served in tiny glasses although they only seemed to have 15 glasses in total!!
Swimming pool dirty and dangerous ! Tiles broken or missing and resulting in people slicing open their feet. Also a few suffered ear infections!
No entertainment and no transfers into town, so access to Naama is down 114 uneven and unlit steps with no suitable handrail!!
The staff told me that they had not been paid for 3 months and were desperate for tips to survive.
The only saving grace to my week in hell were the fantastic guests that were staying at the Halomy the same time as me, what a great bunch!
I would never stay at the Halomy ever again unless the place is demolished and rebuilt and the owners spend lots of money on the accommodation and care more about their guests welfare and safety. The only way to get the owners to do anything about the Halomy is to boycott the hotel completely!! You have been warned!!!!!
