Stayed here from 20th to 24th October in room 308. First impression when you arrive at the hotel is 1960's Butlins. We arrived at 12 noon and check in isn't until 3 but we were allowed to use the all inclusive facilities.
Room had a sea view.
Clean but dated.
Clean towels every day.
Brilliant shower with plenty of hot water.
Breakfast is very good.
Other meals ok (always something you could eat)
Brilliant location right on the beach and within walking distance of the old town along the beach.
All inclusive drinks were good.
Air Conditioning is free.
Nelson (the bar man) was very pleasant and helpful (much better than the receptionists who were very grumpy)
Very dated décor in reception and pool area needs a total revamp.
No comfy seats in reception.
Toilets in the reception and bar area were very smelly.
Drinks in the lounge were served in plastic cups.
Overall the place has a SHABBY appearance.
Had the weather been better I'm sure we would have seen the place in a different light.
Would I go back there?? NO
