4/10 Fair

Im very disappointed. We arrived and they gave us a different room as they where fully booked. We didn’t like the room at all, it don’t even have soup to wash the hands, so we asked to change it. Bc the hotel was fully booked they told me that it was not an option and after I asked again and again they changed me (even when they told me they didn’t have another room, how is this possible…?) the second night bc of the rain the room was full of water ( ALL the floor) and they told that that always happen (how come..!?). We asked for where to take a PCR and they sent us to a place that they where not doing test anymore ( they should now this…!) and they where not willing to call to help us to find us any other place. Also, bc we moved to another room, I left my shampoo in the first room and the day after I asked to help me to recover my shampoo and they told me that it’s not an option that they don’t save any lost/ left item. I’m VERY DISAPPOINTED and I will not recommend to spend your holidays there at all. We had a really bad time with all these situations….

I enjoyed my stay, it was clean, comfortable and a 5 min walk to Jan Thiel beach. The room was a bit small but fine for four nights. Staff was friendly. No major complaints.

Overpriced for what you got, but spacious and close to beach and restaurants and grocery store, great to have car rental and dive shop on site.

4/10 Fair

There was not much we liked: we were not advised when booking that the so-called 'promo rooms' were located on the 2nd floor. Upon check-in and it took quite long to get our room, the front office never offered help with the luggage. My husband just turned 70, and had to haul up the luggage. The hallway: a light that did not work at night, pitch dark. The room: the last hooks of the curtain were not affixed right, causing the morning light to shine early in one's face, the bathroom light never switched off, the teapot was leaking. Housekeeping cleans the room only 2x per week, including the towel change. On one bedside, there was no side table, and one's items had to be placed on the floor! The telephone was defective, so we could not communicate with the front desk. There's no peephole in the room front door, so we could not look in the (dark) hallway. In addition, all electrical outlets are European, we had to go plead at the Front Desk to obtain an adapter, as my husband uses a CPAP machine overnight. The breakfast area was infested with flies, making it unpleasant to eat there. The only plus point for Livingstone Resort is the personnel: friendly housekeeping, front desk and restaurant personnel.

2/10 Poor

This is a 3star property, not 4. We did not get free breakfast, which supposedly came with the villa. Our villa had no soap or shampoo, we had to go buy it. Only one pillow allowed per person, we had to beg for an extra one. Noone in reception seemed to know anything or answer any questions. Most of the front desk people were rude. This is my 1st negative review ever, and I've travelled to 45 countries and stayed in many hotels.
