Cons: I'll award 3 stars at most, the worst that happened to us was the food: the restaurant looked like a "cantina", small area where the food was served, small plates, very poor... More

We visited this hotel in early June. Everything was fine . We were all inclusive , meals could be more varied , at breakfast the same thing for dinner. Nice and clean , close to everything . Nice pool outside and inside , friendly service. Poor knowledge of English. Greetings from Polish .

They do not change towels more than every 3 days, the staff does not speak English and are incompetent, the food is like a bad school lunch. Its very noisy and dirty! Saw a cockroach! Unless you are on a very tight budget and do not care where you sleep, do not go there.

The view from our 10th floor was nice (sea view) and the main street (even noisy at... More
