We stayed in this hotel for 10 days in June 2012.
On arrival we were shown to a twin room, when we were expecting a double. It was explained that we couldn't have a double room until the next day which was then arranged with minimal fuss.
Our room was nicely decorated with a large King size bed, good shower facilities, air-con and a reasonably priced mini-bar. A few reviews call the rooms dated, but I don't think this is the case. The room looked out over a central pool. The route to the room is around the back of the hotel which does take you past the back of the next door restaurant kitchen, which isn't a great first impression.
The cleaning took place every day - although it wasn't always thorough. The bed was always made, but we were left without shower gel once or twice and the floor wasn't always swept.
There was a TV, but it did not show many English channels. We were issued with a Wifi password on arrival. The Wifi was usable for web browsing, but it wasn't a great connection.
The staff were always polite and friendly, however, their English is not strong which can make for some difficulties in communicating.
The location of the hotel is a definite advantage - its right on the beach, right next to the longboats and the restaurant looks out over a short walkway onto the beach which is a nice place to eat.
If you're used to 5* luxury then these niggles might irritate you, but they weren't really major issues for us and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
