Horrible Experience

Just checked out on the way to airport putting review @check out - Braao(Peron front desk) told items are missing on our repeated request asking to recheck he shouted and yelled at us. We had to go to room to show the so called missing items. Still no sorry no thank-you Braao was still shouting n yelling n banging things as he proceeded with the formalities. When we asked for manager he said that he is coming...he Just made us wait, the manager don't turn up...Braao was counting on the fact that we had a flight to catch Another incident with Braao - we had informed well in advance at the reception that we have to check out at 4.30 as we had a flight to catch. despite prior notice, on the day of the check out that too just half an hour before i.e. at 4 Braao says on call that we cannot check out at the said time i.e. 4.30 as his manager was unavailable Later he did let us check out but not without a scene. Other experience Check in 2 we got room at 2:45 pm had to wait Lizards and insects in room 3102 Bathroom lock broken All lights not working in the room Pool open but again no lights in the pool @Mandarava resort: if u want to run this resort, you seriously need to teach Braao some manners We are sad that we had to leave Thailand on such a bitter note

Treehouse heaven

Mayo, Ireland

Got a good deal on this hotel and it didn’t disappoint, the room was large and spacious and was a real treat to be up high amongst the trees, try and get a second floor room for a better view, the resort itself is very big there is lots of exploring to do with all of the pools, buffet breakfast was one of the best I’ve seen in any resort everything was delicious, lunch and dinner was also lovely but ate out most evenings, staff were very helpful find it hard to fault at all. Did our research with people complaining about the steps as it’s up a hill but it didn’t bother us at all, our room was well located in the middle of the resort, if you have trouble walking it is something to keep in mind however, buggy’s drive around the resort to drop and pick up if it’s an issue. Karon beach was very nice one of our favourite areas in Phuket, loved it here didn’t want to leave. Good gym and plenty of staff everywhere - book it.
