Hotel is very tired and in need of some attention, the room needed a face lift and smelt so the windows needed to be left open. The bathroom was old and had no bath. The pool was very small and the area around it was packed in with sun lounges, but I expect if you wanted to use one you... More

Great time on a recent holiday. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was excellent. Close to stores and restaurants, plus on the beach is nice. This is a good place to stay. Take the boat tour to see the caves. Several to chose from.
