The location of CABARETE EAST CONDOMINIUMS was okay ..and the private beach..quite lovely...until the locals found their way onto this PRIVATE beach for a game of football..
But the experience was well and truly spoiled by the staff ..
On arrival ...the girl who showed the apartment to us opened the door and pointed to the bed rooms and said have a nice stay and left us to it...We arrived at night and it was dark..She didn't even turn on the lights or show us where they were.
There are no telephones in the room ..so ...if you had an issue ...you have some walking to do..
The T.V did not work and were told that they would get a technician to us the next day..When the technician came the next day... he told us it was our problem.
The bed was as hard a rock..The worse I have ever slept in..
The nights were cold and the only bedding was two thin sheets..so the only way to keep warm was to use the beach towels in the wardrobe as an extra cover. The bed always had a damp feeling..it was as if they put the sheets on before they were fully dried..
A really uncomfortable feeling.
The shower head was broken so I had to fiddle with the shower to get it to work..quite annoying..The sink was blocked in the bathroom for four days before they cleared it.
Throughout the holiday.. every night there was a POWERCUT...it lasted between 10 minutes and 2 hours ..some times there was more than one. The whole estate would be in total darkness..No contact from the staff as to what was going on..
For those out at the restaurant by the beach , they would have to be escorted back to their apartments by various staff members..You could see the torch lights bobbing around outside as you sat in the dark..Never ever an apology for the inconvenience.
You also have to watch out for very tiny mites ..if you leave a drink out for more than half an hour you will come back and find it infested with the insects..
There was no microwave ..which mean't we couldn't prepare quick snacks..
The cable stopped working ..and we reported it as usual...and went out for the day..That is how we handled everything..We would go to Cabarete ..it was lively..fun and the beach was fantastic..Definitely a better option in terms of fun .
If you are looking for a hassle free vacation...CABARETE EAST CONDOMINIUMS is NOT the place.
