The apartment is in need of some repair and updating. Rattling air conditioning unit inside the apartment at all hours was annoying. Lack of winter bedding was disappointing considering the cool nights. Beds only had sheets and no doonas on beds at all and only very thin old tatty blankets in the cupboard. Broken and ripped curtains in need of repair balcony door locks are corroded and unusable. Frying pan is bowed and needs replacing. Kitchen extractor fan needs cleaning and struggled to work effectively No coffee pod machine is disappointing unlike most other apartment offerings these days. The apartment building and facilities itself are excellent

Thank you for your review. Did you report any of these issues to reception during you stay as some of these issues could have been fixed immediately particularly blankets, replacing the frying pan and sending housekeeping to the unit to clean the kitchen extractor. We are committed to providing our guests and their families with an enjoyable and relaxing stay and are continually monitoring maintenance and upgrades to all our apartments. Apart from these issues we are happy you enjoyed the facilities.

Amazing views and the size of the room booked was fantastic. Staff were at all times excellent, warm, friendly & supportive. Disappointingly, compared to other properties, kitchen utensils and supplies were pretty limited, mattresses were very firm & uncomfortable and pillows limited and either too hard or soft. Thinking like restaurants that offer exceptional views, the view is everything more so than the amenities. Will likely stay elsewhere in the future. Maybe we were expecting more havingvseen the website & experience of other venues like Royal Pines

The apartment was a bit warn out. Well an truly due for a renovation. Marks all over the walls, cracks in the plaster, broken locks on the bathroom doors, broken dishwasher rack, worn out toilet seals (fixed during our stay). Although the kitchen, floors and bathroom were reasonably clean, the capboard doors, skiting boards etc didn't look like they had been cleaned for a long time. The location, pool and tennis court are fantastic though and we would stay again for these.
