It's not the location per say, but the way it is being run that is the problem. Like many people have observed, this place seems to let out rooms to locals. They are extremely loud (and I mean their talking and yelling - this is aside from the blasting music), and there are sketchy looking people (with and without shoes) entering and exiting the rooms all night. Some of the guys are clearly the dealers I try to dodge on the streets.
The facilities are terrible. Out of eight days, there was no water in the bathroom for 4. Two other days it was a trickle. Only two days did the water flow enough to feel comfortable. Don't ask how we managed! Not that we watched too much TV, but the transmission was out most of the time. The much talked about swimming pool was a dirty green color! The sea water looked a million times cleaner!( of course it has salt content, but I'm saying color-wise)
I stayed here, only and only because of a Priceline package. There are several places, costing more or less the same on the beach. These have tiny, pretty pools and have the restuarant/bar staff look after your belongings if you wish to swim in the sea. Also, having a restaurant on site will definitely be a plus, which pure garden lacks.
Lastly, Keri Ann at the front desk - very rude! Most of the other employees were very nice and courteous though.
