Everything was tick tick tick. For a big group of us this place really worked well. Big fridge and freezer plus spare drinks fridge. We never used the TV. Issues? Not really; a shower head failed, it was replaced within hours. Dishwasher leaked, a service man was there in no time at all. The pool got a good work out. This is the sort of place to come back to.
