This was a great basic hotel. The rooms were fine and the towels and beds were changed regularly. The rooms also had air-con which was essential.

I went with my 2yr old daughter, she loved it, although I would say if you're taking a child bring entertainment, my girl was happy on the beach and pool but nothing much else at the hotel for her. Don't buy WiFi, across the road theres a few nice cafes etc that have free WiFi, aircon is 6€ a night.... More
