    Stayed here for one night thank god, when we arrived the guy at the reception seemed high and was useless! Just stood there and left us waiting for ages. Rooms didnt lock so was not secure however there was airconditioning, we paid our $20 key deposit by eftpos and they still havent returned it and its been 3 weeks, have rang then plenty of times and they just dont care about getting it sorted! The pool is awful, only good thing i have to say is that is right next to the lagoon
