Good for economic traveller. If you look something special, not for you. Good service, nice and clean. All inclusive were enough, but only for survive, not for enjoy. Hotel was very clean and ok, but basicly ok.

Didnt like the idea of having to sit throughout... More

I appreciate everyone has different standards and expectations of a holiday but you do expect the hotel to be clean and the food recognizable. All inclusive but no ice creams, snacks, cocktails and the bar closed at 11pm. Even though it was still sunny ordered to "move" off the sun bed at 6pm. Table cloths were filthy, covered in cigarette... More
