We thought it might be a bit wild, but it was fine really. Free wifi in reception and bar was good. Bar closes at 6 as sun goes down-... More

Very good value. The rooms were clean and spacious. The staff very helpful. Rooms cleaned daily. Very quiet position but near all the facilities. The pool area was well maintained and attractive. All in all a very good holiday and we would return.

Stayed here for a week. The room are very dated but very clean. Towels and room cleaned every day. Staff on reception were friendly and helpful. I stayed in room 224 which has pool view and balcony. Only 5 mins walk from the strip. Good value if you only want something cheap and cheerful.
