Bad: tiny, not renewed bathroom - small shower, very small pool, lack of tea/coffe maker in rooms

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2007

The hotel itself is not bad, though we got a tiny room where the air conditioning broke after 3 days (but they fixed it the next day). The food was good (nice choice for its 3 stars) and the room and other spaces were kept clean. They change the towels every day, but never changed the beds during our 7 nights stay.
The location of the hotel is good, because it is close to the main road (stores and agencies for trips are really next door) and in the same time close to the "beach" and the restaurants that cover the shore line.
The "beach" is rocky, and you need special shoes to go in the water, but the sea is great. Clear and warm, with some waves, just enough not to be bored.
The problems we had were related more to the other guests of the hotel (and I understand this is the normal group of tourists they get there): young guys (generally Dutch, British or German) which like to drink a lot and are very loud during the night. So if you are going to this hotel, get ready for "white nights" - it's either you party all night long, or you mostly hate your vacation!
Tips: Don't hurry when choosing one or more of the trips proposed by your agent to the nearby attractions! There are a lot of local agents that could offer bonuses or better travel conditions.
