As this was my first time to Paradise Lagoon Holiday Apartment, I had a hard time finding the place. I did not find any signboard or hotel signage with the name of Paradise Lagoon Holiday Apartment. I only realize that I must have missed the apartment when I reached PD town.
Call up the apartment management for directions and they told me to drive into Corus Paradise Resort which I had already passed by. I thought the Paradise Lagoon Holiday Apartment = Corus Paradise Resort, but it was not!
Once reached Corus Paradise Resort, I could not find the apartment lobby to check-in. It’s somehow hidden. I had to call the apartment management again just to direct me to the apartment lobby.
I was shocked to see the apartment lobby. The so called lobby was actually just one of the apartments in Paradise Lagoon that was converted to a “lobby”. The lobby was really in a mess and untidy when I check-in and the check-in counter “database” was just based on an A4 size log book. No PC or laptop.
If you are facing Corus Paradise Resort, the Paradise Lagoon Holiday Apartment lobby is on your left hand side. The apartment given to me was on the right hand side of Corus Paradise Resort.
It was a bit scary walking to the apartment given, as the area was a bit dark and quite.
My first impression when I step into the apartment was “so-so”, until I saw the bed. I definitely have problem with the bedsheet and blanket given, as there were stains at some parts of the bedsheet. Not to forget the mattress was also not in a good condition, the spring was “old and sinking” that makes me feel so uncomfortable sleeping on it.
There was NO phone provided in the apartment, thus not allowing you to call or get help from the apartment staffs. You have to use your own handphone to call for assistance unless you don’t mind walking to the lobby.
20 inch TV is provided unfortunately you won’t enjoy watching it as the picture is not clear and snowing all the time, sometimes there was no signal to it. Most probably it was not even connected to the TV aerial. The most you can opt is just to watch TV1, TV2 and TV3, don’t dream of watching any HBO, Star-Movie, Cinemax or even the MTV channel.
Not sure about housekeeping services, one thing for sure, I did not receive any of the housekeeping services, did not even see them around the apartment area.
All facilities such as swimming pool, sauna, gymnasium, tennis court, squash court and water sports facilities are provided by Corus Paradise Resort.
