Rooms are very basic, but the free alcohol and mini bar is a treat. The food is 2 star at best. Anything 'seafood' was crab sticks (now called ocean sticks in the UK as they've never been near a crab), crab stick pasta, crab stick rice...., never king prawn, crab, lobster etc.
The buffet food was very repetitive, the hot food was only ever luke marm, I'm surprised we never got a bug. The hotel and the adjacent hotel block the sun on the pool and beach so the only sunbathing time is 11.00 until 3.00.
The room maids only clean the room if you leave a big tip. The batrooms are grubby, with bad plumbing and rust stains in the old bath and basin.
Not 5 star food or hotel, but 5 star bar staff.
