This property is living by its name - Peppers Blue on Blue. Sounds exotic but this property is very average. The pool has recently been improved which is beautiful but our 2 bedroom apartment was very average. Marks on the walls, very limited utensils and food preparation containers. They only had a 2-seater lounge and one sit up chair for the lounge area when we had 4 people in the unit. Our overhead fan/light did not work, our a/c had a “rattle” in it. Both bathrooms did not have extracting fans in them so there bathrooms fogged up.

The property is due for a revamp to continue to be classed as a 4.5 star property. The condition of the property was clean and it is well located.

Quite disappointed with the hotel. Pictures looked a lot nicer, arrived and it was quite old , they hadn’t properly cleaned the room after last guests and it didn’t have any shampoo etc. I would reconsider next time as it’s expensive
