Property condition


  • Liked: Staff & service

Price reflected by you did not match that of the property owners! Even though it stated $140.00 per night, I was charged a total of $237.00. The cleaning fee of $30.00 was extra, I had salad for dinner with a shot of Zambuca that cost $20.00 extra, plus taxes totaled $237.00. Customers need to be warned that unlike staying at a hotel and pre-paying for it upfront where there are no other surprises; the property at Swept Away is different! They said that you did not collect the one night’s stay from me and so I had to pay everything the morning I left at 7:30am! We need to know that in the future!

      • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

      When we arrived we were told to be quiet as there was a gathering going on in the living/dining area, even though we were paying guests and check in already applied. Sitting areas were crowed, our room was tiny.
