Fridge didnt work. doors were broken. Shower went from ice vold to burning hot!! Family rooms are horrid do not stay in them! When arriving we were told the room needed to be aired out because someone had left fish in the fridge. Couldnt air the room out because the fly screen door was off the rails and the slidding door rails were bent.

Food service and staff were fabulous. Loved the resident cat. Android tv and WiFi were great. Family room did NOT resemble photos on website. Lack of maintenance meant broken playground equipment, room doors tricky to open, dodgy lamps, no house keeping left provisions unfulfilled. No face washers provided with towels. Out dated travel brochures.

Loved our room with a view of the main beach. There was some noisy guests but that is unavoidable sometimes.
