Decent Accommodation”

On the Plus - Great location, Beautiful Hotel with friendly staff, room was clean other then the single creepy crawly I was greeted by upon arrival, fresh linens on a comfy bed. On the Negative - Slightly cluttered room due to the bunk beds, poorly equipped gym, small television with poor reception and eventually no signal at all.

The cell number for the contact person was always on voicemail. I called and even sent a message in order to confirm other details, he/she never responded. that was disappointing. I tried calling the hotel, they told me they don't have information because room is not owned by hotel. we had no idea where to get information from. this is business, the contact person need not be out of reach.

Acceptable”

This hotel is closed and during bookings I was not told that it is closed. The rooms are fine and are privately owned but there’s no services in the hotel not even a reception. Everything is don’t in the lodge behind the hotel. It is even scary staying in a 4 storey hotel without even knowing if you’re safe or not. I was very disappointed because one of the reasons I chose the hotel was because it has very good facilities like a sky bar. But none of those things is operational. This needs to be changed because I heard another family that booked there and they were very disappointed.

There is an awful smell of sewerage in the building. Desroches is not a hotel its apartments, you”

You are misleading by saying thats a hotel. The main entrance was closed and we used yhe back entrance. There is no gate for safety of cars. The car parking area is easily accessible by anyone from the streets. The pool at the roof top was dirty, the water was green and the jacuzzi was filthy. I requested a sea facing room and availability was confirmed but when i got there i was given keys for a room that was not sea facing no space, with bunk beds that were occupying space that i didnt even ask for. The man responsible for upkeeping of the hotel was useless,. He asked me to call Agoda for enquiries about the non sea facing room. He told me that he couldnt get hold of the owner of that apartment and that owner only has apartment there. I called the owner and there was no response and i got a voicemail later in the evening that someone was bringing the keys to move to the sea facing room, bt they nwver arrived. I called the owner the following morning and suddenly

Smelly hotel”

I would not recommend your hotel to anyone and the reason for this is that there is a smell of sewage which persists in the hotel, mainly in the bathrooms but also at the kitchen sink. I believe that the sewage system is faulty and can only get worse unless it is attended to. The first room we were given was unacceptable, the smell of sewage being very bad in the bathroom and the air conditioner not working. After complaining we were eventually allocated a second room which was marginally better but still the smell persisted.
