“Would not recommend”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

The positives of this hotel is limited to the outside area which is undeniably nice, but the necessity of the pool is questionable considering the hotel is so close to the beach. Most of the staff are pleasant and helpful too. My boyfriend and I booked a private room with a shared bathroom, and I was quite frankly shocked by the state of the bathroom - the sink was crawling with bugs, the floor was constantly damp as the shower leaked (about all it did) and it smelt bad. Our room was simple, the floors were dirty and so were the towels. We had a massive issue with our room's lock; it took us about 10 minutes to successfully open it each time. The bed's mattress was lumpy and thin and was supported by a piece of cardboard laid across the wooden slats. All in all not worth the money!

Room Tip: Don't get a private with shared bathroom, and make sure the locks work properly!

Excellent hotel: the room is big and clean, bathroom ok and a terrace. There is a swimming pool and a beautiful waiting area next the pool.
The hotel is near the beach.
Last but not least: it's not expensive.
