After the covid 19 you would expect the hygiene levels to be exceptional! Mould ! Hair in our spa and shower, stains all over our carpet, thick duay by the jug and microwave. Absolutely disgusting. Will be reporting you as this is not upto hotel standards. We pay $400 for two nights and the fact we coulsnt eat there or use the jug amd felt uncomfortable using the showers and my baby going on the floor is unacceptable
