Spacious but the room was not clean at all. There were marks all over the walls and sheets and bathroom was gross. Chewed geeing gum was sitting in the shower. We left a day early because of it.

Beach side accommodation

Pros: Location to the beach.
Cons: Replace the bed and pillows and clean the apartment!
Location: Lovely swimming/snorkelling beach across the road.
Took 1.5 hrs for someone to meet us to check us in despite prearranged check in time and needing to phone twice. The room was very dusty - assume it was cleaned after last occupier but not prior to our stay which would have seen the apartment empty prior to our stay. Feet became black from walking aroud the apartment as the floor was dirty and dusty and made sheets and towels black. Great location as it was just across the road from the beach. Furniture was old - the bed was uncomfortable and pillows felt like bricks.

Thank you for your comments. The rooms are serviced every 3 days and apologize for your discomfort. Will have pillows checked if you say what they are.

Fantastic location. Beautiful beach

Pros: Peace and quiet and proximity to a wonderful beach
Cons: Found the kitchen facilities lacking and in need of renewel.
Location: A pleasant 30 minute walk along the beach took you to Muri for eating and shopping. A short walk in the other direction saw more eateries.
We had a large one bedroom unit that was part of a double duplex. Ideally located, being only a couple of minutes walk from the beach. The lush gardens surrounding the unit and lack of close neighbours gave us peace and privacy. The unit was clean with a large and reasonably new bathroom. Excellent hot water. However, the furnishings and cooking utensils are in need of of an update. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Pros: Tropical gardens Direct phone-line Proximity to beach Proximity to bus
Cons: Replace BBQ Repaint, tidy, clean Fix insect mesh Have staff available to help guests Update Information folder
Location: Felt a bit isolated, but not far from a nice café and not too far from supermarket. Close to bus which gives easy access around the whole island.
The apartments are close to the beach, just across the road, but it felt like we were walking through private property to get to the beach. Beautiful tropical gardens. Holes in insect mesh, spider webs in corners. No reception. The room's information folder said to contact the staff anytime on the phone, but it was never answered even when we called during open hours. You have to boil your water, no drinking water or milk provided (lucky we brought a long-life milk in our luggage!). Sadly I accidentally left behind my favourite nightie, and they were unable to find it. The information folder said there was a BBQ available for use on the rooftop, but my husband only found an old broken one that didn't work, and the rooftop was flooded, he thought it may have been a nice area once. Kayaks, but no paddles and no-one to ask for them. A cross dog seems to keep guests away from where the staff live on the second floor. Nice man who did the cleaning. Might have been a nice place once, but now is old and rundown. Did appreciate the garden and the direct phone line.

Very roomy, a bit run down but great for the price

Pros: The rooms were massive with everything you need.
Cons: At least half of the lights needed fixing, the floor needed a sweep and mop before arriving, and some screen locks would help.
Location: Great snorkelling just over the road, muri a 20min walk away.
The rooms could do with some maintenance but they are huge with everything you need. Great snorkelling just across the road. The floors were pretty dirty but the sheets etc are clean. Great value for money, in a great location.

Dirty house down a driveway full of rusted out car

Very dirty - shower filthy, couldn't use cutlery or plates as dirty, sheets and towels stained. Down a driveway full of rusted out cars definitely not like the picture. Ended up staying only one night and left and went and payed full price elsewhere. Definitely don't recommend this place at all!!!

Pros: Being across the street from the beach
June was full of information about the island, where to go, what to eat and what is going on.
