This hotel was in an excellent location, close to main street, shops and beach. Parking was provided and reception staff were friendly offering useful advice on tours and letting us check in early.
The spas on the balcony were an excellent touch, especially if you’re up for a relaxing holiday and the pool was also good.
The main problem was the hotel was very dirty, from the carpet to the walls to ledges abd surfaces. Our carpet was very badly stained (see images) and the walls were covered with marks (although our friend stayed in a room which was tiled and therefore did not appear so dirty).
The rooms were quite small and it was difficult to find space to put 2 suitcases on the floor.
The rooms were also very bright in the mornings and the wooden blinds were locked in places so this could not be prevented (obviously this bothers some people more than others).
We paid $117 a night through the getaway (TV) website and I thought this was reasonable for what we got, however if I had paid any more than this I would have been disappointed.
I do not believe this qualifies as a 4.5 star hotel as it is listed 'sun lover' travel brochure, however due to location and facilities I probably would stay here again (at a discounted rate).
