We arrived at 6.30 am to find the place halfway up a mountain and, instead of 2 seperate studios for the 4 of us, we were crammed in one small apartment with one bedroom and 2 beds hastily put in the living area.
The management showed a distinct lack of interest and told us to sleep on it!
In any event, the complex was looking tired and in urgent need of renovation.
The hills in the complex has to be seen to be believed, The only level ground was the swimming pool.
Apart from Felix, the staff were conspicuous by their absence and attitude of "too much trouble".
I got the distinct impression that they only wanted half board guests.
In the end, 2 of us had to move out and find new accommodation.
In summary, the property is inaccessible, dowdy and unfriendly and expensive in drinks and the mini market.
