Lovely location, within 200 yards of beach and the relaxing sway of the waves is the saving grace for this dated and run down facility. having to hire a kettle for self catering holiday was stretching the term economy holiday to the limit. Very low quality food for breakfast, meant that I only ate there twice, preferring local eateries for... More

We were a bit apprehensive after reading all the negative reviews, but was pleasantly surprised by the spacious rooms for a group of 3 in Block A 212, the balcony view towards the town and the beach was better than expected. The beach is just 2 minutes from the room! We were fortunate to see a dozen dolphins swim across... More

5 friends on a holiday break in which we got back early hours this morning, we went all inclusive and couldn't complain on the slightest. We all expected the hotel tobwe such a dump when we arrived but was greatly surprised with our huge room! Great holiday, nice staff, close to everything and well worth the money!!

Group of friends arriving in November for a bday weekend. Not a hotel for young people, a lot of older couples. Food very repetitive, stuck to chips. Reception staff very nyc. A good location with minibus to market. Right next to the beach. Rooms very very spacious with big balconies. A nice Chinese restaurant in town. A good club we... More

Nice large beach all the way into town centre, quite a long tiring trek on sand but better than hilly road alternative.Hotel food had good selection of meat fish & salads, soups were... More

We arrived at night and were not in the main hotel so we walked down the street to a block of apartments which resembled a block of cells in a prison. The room was cold damp and full of mould, the towels were full of plucks and off white colour, the TV was the very first invented, or at least... More

On arrival our room was not ready which seems a common event as we saw this most days.I would not normally see this as a problem as people do not have to check out till noon but the hotel was very quiet so must have had vacant rooms.We were allowed to leave our cases in a secure shed near reception...

Overall,the service was O,k. The food was what I paid for, but still went to source the local cuisine. The staff was friendly... More
