Good location, helpful staff, excellent balcony and view, lovely clean linen and a very good breakfast. Although clean, the hotel in general needs refurbishing as it is rather shabby. The pool area in particular is desperately needing attention, a good area, but in a poor state of repair.

Tale of 2 halves really. Booked this place as it was the cheapest family hotel with a pool. Have to give it a little grace for that, however the pictures shown on the booking website are set at just the right angles you don't get to see the real deal. Lots of downsides to this hotel and during the first... More

The hotel was falling to bits. Rehabilitation stronger recommended. Better still, level the hotel and rebuild it.The food was edible-just. The pool was dirty and the tennis court was useless because the net could not be adjusted and there was no space at the back of the court.

I rated this as very good simply because for the money it was what we expected. The room, bathroom, bedding etc were clean. Cleaner came each day. We were B & B and although breakfast was the same each day the choice was good (fruit cocktail especially). Staff were very nice and helpful. The hotel is in a great location... More

We spent 4 days on this hotel in july 2013, and what we found is that it is a simple hotel that's well located (transports/restaurants/bars/small urban beach), and with na extra of 5/6€ they can open a small kitchenette (eqquiped with almost all tools you need) that allows you to buy food and cook yourself. The staff was ok and... More

Never have I ever been more disgusted with a hotel ever. I go on at least 6 holidays a year ranging from weekends to 6 weeks. Thank goodness this was only a weekend. We were called liars more than once

We were dreading our stay here having read the reviews the day before leaving home but hotel was better on the inside than from outside. It looked boarded up from outside and whole place needs a revamp. Food simple and acceptable although same breakfast & dessert each day became monotonous. Swimming pool unusable and looked filthy. This could become a... More
