Perfect location - quiet enough street, right across from the beach, small hotel where there is no daily struggle to get a sun bed, things run smoothly and quietly, at least that was my firsthand experience when I went for holiday back in September. My room was large with a terrace, doulbe bed, white furnishings and decent bathroom. Upstairs terrace...

This hotel has really beautiful view from the top roof together with bar and pool. We have spent most of the time up there. Rooms were not clean properly and in the bath you could actually see and hear neighbours next door, Me and my wife been there on all inclusive but now I wish we had only room. Food...

Great location if you're a beach lover. Generally it was ok. The food wasn't too bad and actually was really quite nice on their Japanese themed night. Only giving this an average rating though as the bathroom was a little yuck and could do with a really good deep clean and probably a refurb. The decor was clearly at the...

This review is a couple of months overdue as I stayed in Whala on holiday in the month of October. I know its towards the end of the season, and sometimes staff is tired already and things are a little rundown, but not at Whala beach, the service was excellent, the location close to the beach and to the main...

Was impressed from day 1 with the hotel and how close it was to the beach. Staff were welcoming and made us feel at home straight off. Room good. Pretty simple in the way they've done them up but liked it and bathroom was bright. The location was the best thing about it for us. Not far from the airport...

The location of the hotel is the best we got lucky in that regard, just walkingbout a couple of steps you are...

Good for families but I was worried because I'd read that it was very noisy but we had nothing to worry about because it was quiet or at least the week when we were there. There is a mix of nationalities which makes it more interesting. No tacky entertainment which is good for a change. Staff are ok but not...

Absolutely brilliant! would defo go there again, hotel staff was brilliant, pool lovely and the beach was so close, could see it from our apartment....

We got a total steal on this this holiday staying at Whala, its right accross from the beach on one end, and right by the busy streets on the other end, so we walked everywhere all holiday, the only time we took taxis was to see the cathedral, everything else was close by. Our room was as expected a bit...

This hotel is all about it's beach location. It is a budget hotel and this was fine, in fact it was just what we were expecting. Right in amongst the shops you don't have to go far if you are looking for bars and restaurants. The breakfast and dinner was okay but could do with more veggies as my wife...
