Arrived very late, greeted by friendly night manager with easy check in. Room was clean, bed comfortable for good sleep, private gated balcony overlooking pool perfect for morning coffee and relax. Stayed several times, always a good experience.

I was booked in for three nights. I had a poolside room with my own private "courtyard" which is a euphemism for dirty furniture in a very small space. The doors of the wardrobe were covered in dust and mould, the shower had tiles missing, the drawers were dirty, the floor was covered in unidentifiable crap, the bedspread smelled, and... More
