Location is fair, a 10 minute walk from the beach, but it seems a little out of place, everywhere around is quite shabby and unfinished. The hotel itself is nice and clean, although somewhat erratically maintained (the walls seem to be painted in patches as and when they feel like), and inside, although clean, seems a little dated.
The hotel room is basic but comfortable, although the walls may as well be made from cardboard for all the sound proofing they provide. The main door to the room has a good two inch gap from the bottom to the floor and you hear everyone going past our room at all hours, coupled with the lack of draught excluder on the balcony door makes for a constant gale blowing through the room making it cold at night.
The staff are very friendly, although, I'm sure most could do without their boasting about how many women they have been with on the resort, or how many girlfriends they have. If you're a young single blonde, you will have have excellent service and the staff will bring you drinks when you finish, if you're not, then you will just have to go an get your own drinks and food!
Entertainment is non existent. I went with the intention of avoiding children by going in October, but the place was overran with lots of screaming out of control children with nothing to do, there is no activity club, no games for them to play and the water slides are only ran for an hour each day.
The evening continued the lack of entertainment, again lots of out of control children running around a crowded lobby area making this one of the worst experiences ever.
In general the food was good, but thankfully the bar over the road provided an excellent cooked breakfast.
The hotel was half full, however, the pool area was crowded, and there was insufficient seating space in the rest of the hotel during the lack lustre evenings; I'd hate to think what it would be like if it was full.
It boasts a fitness centre, for the eco minded of you out there, this is ideal, but don't expect anything special, it's old rusty and couldn't cope with more than a couple of people at a time; went with the intention of using the gym, but although it was constantly empty, I, like others chose not to use it.
My recommendation is to give this one a miss!
