Staff the only selling point of this tired and over populated resort. From check in to check out all staff were brilliant. Certainly not the place for people wanting a quiet holiday. About 5 minutes walk off "The Strip" unless you are seeking a Portugese Las Vegas come Patpong Road experience then this is not a redeeming feature of the... More

There was a bedroom, living room with 2 sofa beds, bathroom and kitchen and a balcony. Wish we had booked for longer because everything was really clean and comfortable. We... More
