The room had a double and single bed and had plenty of additional space. The bathroom was clean and had plenty of towels. The rooms are cleaned every... More

We stayed here for 1 night in February and it was very nice and in a beautiful spot. The staff were nice, we had bar food on the night we arrived, it was nice but lacked presentation I thought. We may return again.

We stayed here in Feburary prior to our Wedding in August at the hotel. We were given a room with a balcony with great views of Polan Beach. The food and service were fantastic. You can eat from the bar menu or restuarant menu. The breakfast was plentyful and great selection. Great peaceful location highly recommended.
