Well, well well! Where do I start? I'll keep this short as it pains me to relive images and my brief experience of this hotel. Please do not go! This hotel is a 1 star and service is unbelievable. This hotel is a health and safety concern with loose electrics, dirty pools, fleas, mouldy milk.. oh the list is endless.... More

It is a little tired but it is clean and the room we were allocated was large with a massive L-shaped balcony from which we had a view of the sea. It was cleaned daily and fresh towels supplied when required. We have mentioned... More

The hotel itself and the rooms are totally okay, they are clean and what you'd expect of a three star hotel. The location is perfect if you don't care about noise from the street.

No natural light and had not been cleaned thoroughly for months. Brown mould along and in the shower tray, dirty toilet and foists smell. Towels changed every day but never clean... More
