Lakes Resort was absolutely filthy! Never again!
We checked in at 5pm, with our room being “cleaned” at our arrival, lucky we didn’t arrive for a 2pm check in. The attendant left the room with no cleaning trolly or products in hand.
The room was unhygienic! And smelt as though someone had taken a fresh bowel movement in the toilet. The kitchen was covered in grime, the floor was sticky & covered in crumbs, the shower was wet and full of hair, the bedside tables dusty, the bed bases covered in god knows what: stains- (this is what we could see, we were too scared to see what was under the sheets). The blinds were broken, the fridge full of mould & the bathroom cabinetry cracked & water damaged.
The parking situation is a disaster. We weren’t expecting to be able to park right outside our room, but the parking is so tight, with minimal room for movement. We parked on the street and risked the safety of our car, to avoid dints and scratches- or worse.
Our “neighbors” played music and swam in the pool till all hours of the morning. The walls are paper thin & the blinds provide minimal privacy.
If it weren’t for the friendly customer service of the lady on the front desk, running water and electricity, I’d be giving a rating of -5 stars!
We’ve stayed in cleaner hostels!
Take our advice, pay the little extra and stay at the Beachcomber down the road!
What an absolute nightmare!
