The place is basic - if you are talking about the room - i've been to the simple one - and taking in consideration the price - it's a good honest room for spending the night in. The pool is really nice too, but the construction site of Novotel that is right next to The Front village spoils all the... More

We've been at the Front Village for a week in May 2014. The impressions are mixed. The "seaview" rooms actually look at the road. And across the road is a sewage pit, and then some small lake. You can hardly see the sea. Some of the bathroom equipment was dirty. The curtain has mould on it, the fan had big... More

Poor staff around pool and bar. No wifi in rooms unless you pay extra. Expensive drinks from hotel. Just really average. Went in main kitchen to boil some water for my babies flask and well I never ate there again. Looked like it could do with a DEEP CLEAN. Not just from that day. Put me off hotel.
