We stayed in end of february - beginning of March for two weeks in a ground floor delux club villa. We paid for a superior cottage but we were given an upgrade on arrival. Like previous reviews, the reception was a little bit of a worry upon arrival as it is quite small and run down, but after walking away and towards the room my first impression changed. Our room was quite large, the bed was huge so this did take alot of space up in our room. We had a great plazma tv with a good movie channel. Our air-con for the first few days was making a weird noise and started leaking, we didnt complain just left it off for the day with towels under it and when we got back room-service had gotten someone to fix it after noticing the towels. Room service was never done at the same time, and a few times when sleeping in till after 9.30am they did knock. But always cleaned it well and were always friendly. The bathroom was a little old and looks as if it will need to be done up soon, there was an out door shower which went hot to cold every five minutes, we never said anything but assuming the neighbours did complain as towards the end reception rang us and told us they will fix it, and they did. As the cottages were sets of four, our out-door shower was next to someone elses and i could hear everyword they said while in the bathroom, including their complaining about the shower going hot and cold!
Breakfast was great and always had lots of food. The toaster was very slow and there was often only 3 types of fruits available. Drinks and food by the pool was also very good.
Service through out the hotel was great.
The ground level pool was a little run-down but nice and refreshing, if it was a hot day though the pool would be quite warm. There wasnt much shade over the pools untill the after-noon aswell. The floor around the pool was also extremely hot so you need to wear thongs around it! The top adults only pool water was always dirty but it was very relaxing with great views and a breeze.
The location is great. We had a bike and parked in the bike car-park, much more convenient then finding and paying for a taxi. Security at the front were also very friendly and helped out with our bike and trying to find a spot to park.
A few loud kids towards the end, nothing wrong with kids having fun but when your trying to relax it can be a bit too much - adult pool doesnt have this problem. If you want a drink or a snack you have to walk all the way down and order at the bar, unlike the ground floor pool right next to the bar.
Lounges infront of the bar are great to have a drink during the sun-set.
The weather was generally always hot, though it was very dark and cloudy for about 4 days in a row so we didnt get any sun then. It did rain alot at night which was frustrating when being on the back of a bike. But most days were sunny and nice and the low season is deffinitely reccommended because there is far less tourists around. The markets and taxi's are a little more expensive in the low season, but obviously hotels are cheaper.
It was overall great hotel and location I would definitely reccommend this place for a couple!
