Hotel totally basic, it was cheap but my god the food was disgusting. I had to eat out for every meal and ended up spending a fortune. You couldn't even have toast for breakfast because the butter was rank. Pool good, rooms good size. However lost my key one night and when I told the very very rude receptionist she... More

It did not dissapoint us since we didn' t really expect anything for the money we paid 😊 We only hoped it would be clean enough to sleep in. I would summarise it as "value for money" since it was really cheap so if you are travelling on tight budget and dont expect anything but a place to stay over... More

I stayed here April 2015 for 3 nights on my stag. The rooms were clean, pool area was lovely and a nice walk past lots of other bars and restaurants takes you to the marina. Cheap and cheerful... Great spot!
