We stayed here for four days and generally had a lovely time. The location is absolutely perfect, it's right on the beach and was simply idyllic.
However, what brings the rating of this hotel down are a number of things. Firstly, the room is fine and includes air con, the furniture is a little old and broken in some places, the bed was comfortable but the bathroom was damp, smelly and the shower cubicle musty and full of mould! So much so that my son refused to shower in it! The mosquito net was huge and covered the bed and an additional one but had plasters over the holes! The chairs on the balcony were marked and looked like they had been taken out of a seventies furniture showroom, they reminded me of my nan's front room 20 + years ago!
Our package was half board and generally the food was fine. The hotel would benefit from covering the food though as the flies tended to land on the open food. The staff were very demotivated and at times came across as rude. The only time I saw a change was the day before we left, knowing our stay was almost over and there may be a tip in it for them, they became very attentive and helpful! The Manager speaks very little English and is rude - his manner towards us remained the same even when we settled the bill. You would normally expect to be asked had you enjoyed your stay and a thanks for coming, but no such luck!
The pool is fine but small and again tired, it needs maintenance as the lights aren't working and the wires are hanging out, also some of the tiles are cracked.
I think this hotel professes to be a four star, but I would tend to disagree and feel it's more a three star which needs work. The staff is all male and I think it would benefit from a female eye.
