I liked that the place is obviously well maintained. However 20 plus year old air conditioners in a room that cost $304 a night is unacceptable, especially when said air conditioner make a huge noise when turned on and forces the guest (me) to move rooms to the other side of the complex. Imagine this; you're tired from a long drive, you want to get to your room and have a quick sleep to make up for the 4am start. So you quickly unpack EVERYTHING from the car. Clothes and toiletries, put away, shirts and suit hung in the wardrobe, now time to hit the bed for a couple of hours of shut eye before a 6pm event time. Turns 20 plus year old air conditioner on to find that it's making a hue clanking sound. The imagine having to call reception to get maintenance to check out this 20 plus year old air conditioner, only to be told it's irreparable and I'll have to be moved to another room....on the other side of the complex, which means packing up everything AGAIN, loading it into the car, driving to the other side of the complex and unloading it all again. No apology from Abbey Beach, but the maintenance man did say sorry for the hassle of having to move. So I missed out on my sleep, and left the evenings event early because I was knackered. That was my experience staying at Abbey Beach Resort. $304/night.
