The property was well serviced and clean, but the mattress was old and soft with body inprints The shower was mouldy and the shower head was damaged almost no hot water came out even though the hot water pressure is high on all other taps, the shower was next to useless

Stayed in a cabin for most of May 2022. The cabin we were initially allocated was not clean (scum on doors, something spilled on floor and not mopped up, dust and dirt on many surfaces) and it smelled of cigarettes. We told reception and they offered to move us to a different cabin which turned out to be an upgrade. This one was an improvement in terms of cleanliness and smell; and we settled in, unpacking our suitcases for a 3 week stay. The next day we were told a mistake had been made and we would have to pay the additional $1000 to stay in this cabin or we could move back to the original one. The area manager was eventually consulted and it was agreed we would not pay the extra charge. After a week, all of us had respiratory issues and we discovered the bedroom aircon was full of mould. My son and I were put on medication by a doctor and told to have the aircon cleaned or stop using it. We reported it twice for maintenance but nothing was done nor did the manager come to speak to us about it (we were told that she would). I bought products to clean more mould off window sills, curtains and walls so we wouldn’t get sick again. We stopped using the bedroom aircon. Outside of the cabin, the jumping pillow is deflated and unusable, the squash courts are locked and inaccessible, the playground has sections taped off as they need fixing (other parts should be taped off too as there are sharp, rusted pieces sticking up on the platforms), many washing machines are out of order.

The plumber and front receptionist , asked twice at start of the day before we took off for the day for them to fix the water issue in cabin 39 and for them to call me so I could explain what was happening ( no phone calls ) , very poor water pressure and that it only had hot water or cold it wouldn't mix , and it was not fixed ! Was told nothing was wrong with it when we went back to ask again for a 3rd time , there's gold shavings coming out of the shower head from somewhere in the internal pipework, clearly an issue Will not be coming back
