Nice rooms, good food and friendly staff. I would recomend it for families and young couples or group of friends. Located a few minutes walk from the beach, and there are a lot of restaurants and clubs around.

Also when going down for food you need to take with you a small piece of paper that you were given... More

I will start by saying the staff were welcoming helpful and very friendly, room was clean and value for money but food was very poor, cold with very poor choice which seemed to be catering for the Eastern European guests ,(Italian guests were also finding breakfast not to their liking,) Had to queue for toast and hot drinks nothing appetising...
