But the room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable..The bathroom needed some maintenance, but it had various toiletries, slippers, and dryer! Breakfast...

Don't be fooled with any photos or promises. Stay away from this dump! This is one of the worst places I have been to. My wife and I went there for a break and it was an actual nightmare.. The supposedly sea view room actually overlooks a pile of stinking garbage and old car greased spare parts. There was no...

Going into the hotel, one is stunned by all the marble flooring that is reminiscent of a place that was designed to be luxurious. However, staying there was anything but luxurious. For starters we were asked to pay upfront the room. I did not have enough cash and they were unable to run my credit card. The rooms were very...
