There are two good things about this place:
2.nice panoramic view of the sea from above the hill.
Breakfast was Ok (freshly pressed orange juice was very nice). Lunches/dinners were nothing special, although edible.
Now the bad things:
1.pictures posted here and on booking.com are completely misleading, the reality is VERY different (to the worse).
2.the "swimming pools" are actually two reservoirs of smelly green water, looks like neither has EVER been cleaned at all (do not believe the pictures!).
3.the "tennis court" has known better times two, now it's just a space with uneven surface, not fit for anything meaningful.
4.rooms vary in quality and distance from the breakfast room. The 2 bunghalows look newest and least worn.
5.friendliness of staff varies greatly, some personalities would easily go into "not possible" mode while others would try to work out some solution.
6.location is really in the middle of nowhere, do not even think of going without a car, peferably a 4x4 one.
