From the dodgy electrics to the filthy floors it is a struggle to find anything positive to say about these apartments.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment in August 2013, after reading the previous year’s reviews we knew to expect basic but what we didn’t expect was filth and neglect. You don’t usually expect your first purchase from the supermarket to be bleach and cleaning products.
The floors were un-swept and I doubt they had been mopped in weeks, the sheets and towels were only changed once, one toilet was unusable due to the dubious stains and broken seat. The bathroom floor was disgusting and the shower tray mouldy (don’t look at the photos if you haven’t eaten yet!!) The kitchen was not in a fit state for cooking and the fridge had definitely seen better days and struggled to do its job. All the furnishings were shabby and worn, missing handles and broken catches. The central light fitting in the bedroom had come away from the ceiling and the mattress was bigger than the base so you were quickly dumped onto the floor if you happened to sit on the wrong side.
More worryingly, none of the balcony doors locked and more than once, blue flashes came from the light switches and water flowed from the AC onto the dressing table.
There was a cleaner, but she obviously struggled to keep the place clean on her own but managed to remember to turn off the air conditioning units daily. On a day to day basis the place is run by 3 young boys who did try to please and worked hard but complaints made to the owner were not rectified and passed back to the boys. I would also say, check your bill as maths didn’t seem to be a strong point!
On a positive note, the pool area is adequate, although shabby and the pool (mostly) clean, the local area was nice and quiet but within a short walking distance from shops and restaurants and we met some lovely families from all over the UK.
It is a shame, as the size of these apartments is great and if money were to be spent, they would have the potential to be fantastic, but it seems that the lack of any concern by the owners and overall neglect has led to what are the worst apartments we have ever stayed in.
I would urge you to stay elsewhere or pack industrial cleaner!
