Yes there are a lot is Russians at this hotel, but we did not find this off putting , they were mostly you families, do not let this influence... More

Leaving tomorrow and it has been a nice stay. I as a person don't care so much about the staff. So I don't mind they be g short in conversation. Nice and clean rooms. The cleaningstaff take the money you leave outside the saftybox so keep that in mind. Good 10 min walk to beach but that's good for you.... More

Sorry TEAM. This place really went downhill. When I arrived it was no longer a locals place, as the clientele demographics really changed, with all Russian tourists. Internet no longer offered in the hotel room and there was no definite estimate that would be working. Intermittent WiFi was offered in the outdoor lobby. Now you have to pay for your... More

When we first arrived at around 10pm they had lost our booking.com online booking. We had to wait 2 hours for them to sort it out. Room is OK. No WiFi in the rooms. Shower is terrible. It's either hot or cold. Staff are very unfriendly and look like they have had enough of westerners. it's a far walk to... More

It's a bit weird this hotel is hardly ever reviewed, the only reason I can think off is that this place caters almost exclusively for Russian tourists ( I'd guess 98% ) and that they don't use T.A. , this is a cheap budget hotel and you get what you pay for, if you want any kind of luxury then...

We are a family of 3 adults and 8 months kid booked for 2 rooms in the pool access. We've got the connecting room which was very convenience for us. The room is clean and well-maintain. Overall is worth for money and we will return.

In just 24 hours of stay in this hotel, I already felt like I never left home (I stayed for 6 days and 6 nights). The staff seem shy but they are accommodating. The rooms are exactly what's on the promotional materials-clean, spacious, and relaxing. The pool is warm and clean. The Phulin is just a 10 minute walk from... More

We stayed here for 8 nights at the end of our honeymoon. We paid £9 per night for a standard room. The pool was very nice in a tranquil surrounding. We were provided with free bottles of water throughout the day however these would have to be ordered via room service and not at the bar. The staff spoke very... More
