We recently stayed at dreamview for a week to celebrate our friends' wedding which was held at Wananavu. As we have 4children, they couldn't accommodate us at Wananavu. The villa was plenty big enough, and the owner Mr Reddy accommodated my requests to get a cot and high chair which we really appreciated. We were very unlucky with the weather, constant torrential rain and gale force winds which made our stay difficult with 4 children, as even getting out the door in that weather was crazy. Unfortunately the wind blew the satellite off the roof so there was no sky tv for the rest of our stay. However, these were just unlucky things. What we were disappointed about, was that the keys to our villa, which we left on the bench in the kitchen, disappeared on the 2nd day we were there. Then, a few days later, a gold & diamond necklace disappeared from the master bedroom. The manager Ashna was very helpful and said she would ask all the staff, but we were just so Disappointed that this could happen in such a quite location where we were very trusting. Also, I have to agree with the previous post about the cleaning, it just never felt very clean, with mould in the bathrooms. The upstairs bathroom flooded every day with all the rain, as it the windows leaked, so all the towels were constantly soaked, and they don't give you extra towels for the pool so the towels get a little tired after a few days and just smelt. I understand how hard it must be in that climate with the mould etc, but there are cleaning products available to combat that. I didn't stress at the time as we were on holiday, but the day after we left, 2 of my children broke out with impetigo, 1 with hand foot and mouth disease and 1 with tinea! I just couldn't believe it, and I'm a nurse so very particular about hygiene. It just wasn't cleaned properly.
Also, the airconditioner in the master bedroom didn't work, and we had no hot water on the first day. the manager then told us you need to turn on the hot water switch upstairs for an hour before showering to get hot water, as there had been so much rain, there was no hot water. I realize its a poor country, but it just made a holiday with 4 small children difficult. We spent a lot of time down at Wananavu which was great, as all our friends were staying there for the wedding, and Jay from sunshine tours was very helpful with all our transfers. It's just a steep rocky road up and down to Wananavu ESP in the rain with a pram!
