The rooms are tired, with wallpaper peeling, outdated furnishings and basic bathrooms. Seaviews are good, but rooms can be very hot.
Service in the bar and restaurants is extraordinarily slow, with over an hour from ordering to get one plate of food, only to wait further for the rest. Further irritation caused when complaining, by being told that we had got food eventually even if it had taken 90 minutes!
Parking is tricky. Hit and miss as to whether you can get a space.
