Our stay at the Atupa Orchid for my wife, our baby boy and myself was one we would never want to experience again. The following things happened.
- Small electrical fan which could blow and cool air more than 5cm
- 20 year old hand me down rags of towels which were never ever changed. We re used these dirty towels over and over
- There was a door in between our bedroom and the neighbours room
- There was a cleaner who worked there, but not once did we have our room cleaned
- A dirty ear bud was found on the floor in the bedroom that was there before we got there
We had no choice but to find another place to stay especially since our son couldn't sleep in the heat. We didn't stay long there and had to pay a fee of 2 nights fee because we preventing someone from staying in a unit. Umm that would be the case if there were people staying there, and if there were then they must be knocturnal
And because we told Joe Caffery the owner we had to go, he went from a nice easy guy to a total schmuck.
If your considering staying here, then you have been warned. Don't go through the same things we did.
