Wow, Mission Hills. After staying at a 6 star resort we moved to Mission Hills for two nights, for the soul purpose of my husband playing golf here.
I wish I'd only booked one night.
If you're after a resort with rooms that are cheap, clean, and comfortable then this is your place. Near the airport, its a good place to crash and staying here for golf means a much less earlier start. Housekeeping are great, they're really trying and you can see their attention to detail despite the 1980's decor and unrefurbished, run down rooms. Even though the shower handle falls off in your hand when you try and adjust the temp, the shower is scrubbed spotless. The bathroom is immaculately clean, and even though the floorboards are severely warped and raised from what I assume was flooding, they are sparkling. The linens are crisp and clean and decorated with flowers, and the mini bar restocked daily.
The rest of the resort unfortunately is a bit of a disaster.
The pool area is generally quite putrid. There is a large sunken water feature outside our pool access room which we have to step over. It is empty, and filthy. Obviously it needs fixing but we didn't see anyone working on it (see my photos to view it).
The pool bar looks like a hygiene nightmare. Not that you can get a drink even if you wanted one, it seems to be unmanned for the majority of the day, and I can understand why given me and my husband were the only ones using the pool during our stay. In fact, the place was so deserted we went INTO the pool bar to check it out and it was a cesspool, I don't think the benches have been wiped down in a very, very long time, and aside from the bottles of boiling hot liquor sitting in the sun i'm not sure the bar is stocked with anything. When we arrived there were two dirty towels that previous guests had left on the poolbar, when we checked out those two dirty towels were still there. Seriously.
The breakfast was, for me a disappointment. I am unable to eat gluten, and its a serious allergy so imagine my disappointment when I discovered a lot of the breakfast items were laid on bread - not the resorts fault of course, they couldnt know about my dietary requirements, but when I tried to explain my predicament and asked if something could be cooked fresh they didn't understand me and said it would cost extra. There was next to no fruit left, so in the end i had a nice omelette and a dry piece of water melon for breakfast.
The Day Spa had no staff so cant comment on that.
The positive is that we used the resort shuttle to go check out the local beach and had a lovely fresh seafood dinner there, and my husband loved his round of golf.
So in short, we had two nights here but wish it was one.
