First off, the area where this hotel is located is really not inviting. It is not right on the beach but on a pretty busy road. There are no restaurants close by and they are about to tear down a hotel on the opposite site of the street which really didn't add to the overall impression when we first arrived.
We had breakfast booked for the entire week and on Christmas morning we found out that there is no breakfast that day. They sent us to a shop nearby were they apparently serve breakfast which they didn't. It was closed. The other mornings the breakfast was cold and the service was not good.
At least on 2 days, the Jacuzzi was not working properly.
The bill didn't seem to be correct. When I raised my concern, the person at the front desk clearly had no idea what actually was on the bill and could not explain. He said that he would take this up to management. A few weeks later they charged my credit card with an amount I never agreed to.
I may have been able to overlook those things, had I booked an inexpensive hotel. But for the price they charge I cannot recommend this hotel.
