Stayed for 1 night at this hotel. Facade of the building appears rustic, ala 70s kind with the bubble lifts and rooms facing a central courtyard. Room was recently refurbished. It was clean and well lit. Typical full service hotel amenities available ie towels, toiletries, TV, ironing board, hair dryer etc (no kettle to boil water though). Uninteresting TV channels...

Stayed here for 2 nights in March with wife and 3 children, all under age of 12. Drove to the hotel and the 1st impression was not a wow. The landscape at the front of the hotel looked tired. The lobby is huge and impressive but the interior design can be improved. We stayed in the family room which was... More

The room is spacious, although outdated and carpet is not that thoroughly vacuumed. Long overdue for a makeover. However, pool is great especially the play area for kids. The beach is nice to look at and sunset is stunning, but the water doesn't look clean for a swim. The music from next door Hard Rock hotel is disturbing at first... More

Dear SitiFira, I am sorry you found the hotel’s style outdated but not withstanding that, you liked our spacious room and kids play pool. On our public beach & sea, regrettably we are located along a busy shipping route. The sea water quality is unpredictable including the presence of jellyfishes, hence, we compensate this situation with a hygienic and safe... More

My family stayed here for the duathlon race. We stayed in a family room (sea view) with breakfast.
