My friend and I booked a room here and the biggest influence when making our choice was the price and location. On arrival we were too early to book in, so went for something to eat and returned later. Sadly after waiting, our room turned out to be a double and we were booked in a twin room. We were...

Plenty of fruit at breakfast.The only thing lacking in the room was a kettle. This is a comment rather than a complaint. Our next hotel was 5 star...

When we got there we were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness and choice available in...

As mentioned by other reviewers, this hotel is great for sleep only. The location is amazing, near the beach and right in front of the Casino. The staff is great, the hotel is clean but that's not a beautiful hotel. Internet connexion is poor and if you want to increase your chances to use the wifi you have to go...
