It's true what others have said the hotel needs money spent. The rooms all have a wonderful sea view we had a kitchen area too Breakfast has a great selection and egg station What you can't fault is the location and the staff

I felt like traveling back to 1990, the carpets have stains and ware that look 20 years old. The rooms are large, but with lack of care. Location is great, right in front of the beach. I will not come back until a full renovation is done. A stain in the Sheraton family.

Stayed at this hotel for two nights and had a room on 10th floor. First thing that hits you is the smell of DAMP. My room had a humidifier and I had to empty it 3 times a day as it was filling up with water so what is that saying. After first night in the room I woke up... More

Sure a shame. This hotel could be amazing as the location across the road from the beach is perfect. The rooms are big with a small kitchen and sitting area, bathrooms are small with the hot water a bit hit and miss. And the rooms feel damp. But they are desperate to be updated and the corridors tired with worn... More

The hotel has undergone a partial return and is nice. The rooms are a bit damp and therefore a bit smelly. However the view from the balcony is fab! Staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is plentiful with lots of choice.
