We stayed here for 5 days thinking that it was going to be next to the main attractions but you need to get a taxi to everywhere as its quite out the way. In fact most taxis we got in at the end of the night couldn't take us as they didn't know where it was!! We had to tell them the name of a big hotel nearby!
Upon arriving we were checked in quickly and taken to our room. The rooms are fine and were clean, with a nice bathroom with separate shower and bath. One thing I did not like was the smell of smoke - it seemed that a lot of people were smoking in their rooms and the smell finds its way into your room. Also the views from the room were non existent.
There is a small sunbathing area at the top of the hotel with a little pool and gym. They are okay although it was difficult to get a seat as it was quite often full.
We didnt eat in the hotel and really only spent very short amount of time in the hotel as there is so much to see and do.
We booked the hotel initially as the price was about £500 each less than staying at a nice hotel on the beach and although it was annoying being out the way taxis are at least 3 times cheaper than in the UK and we had more spending money.
Overall you get what you pay for and this hotel is distinctively average.
