We stayed here this August for nine nights and were REALLY impressed, particularly by the competent and friendly staff who went out of their way to be helpful. Even the cleaning staff made a deliberate attempt to smile and say hello and were a credit to their employees. The hotel itself was perfect for the budget. A short walk from... More

The surrounds of the hotel were wonderful - great pool area, abundant tropical planting, clean and well tended, impressive foyer and portico. Room was a bit of a shock - bare frugal and carpet looked a bit suspect. We had a cheap deal for 3 days in August so can't complain too much - as long as you didn't stay... More

I'd found a mucky mark on the sheet when we'd gone to bed on the 1st night which I mentioned to the reception staff on the way to breakfast in the morning. She... More

Kids swan from 8am - 6pm everyday and we lounged by the pool, and ordered food and drinks from the poolside bar which was basic but convenient and did the... More

We spent 6 nights here in August 2014 in a studio apartment looking out over one of two lap pools. The room was clean and comfortable with a kitchenette and an ensuite bathroom with the shower over the spa bath. The continental breakfast was simple but adequate. There is a tennis court, a gym, an outdoor spa and a beautiful... More
