“Could be a hidden gem but needs re-vamping”
Reviewed March 17, 2011

We stayed here for 4 nights in February and on arrival (its not easy to find) we were shown to our room which was bright and airy but sadly not clean. I returned to reception and was shown 4 other empty rooms on the same floor but thought they were dark and dingy so agreed to wait whilst our room was cleaned.
We had a pool view room with two balconies which is why it was bright and the air-con kept it cool at night but the bathroom has no ventilation so the door needs to be kept closed to prevent mosquito's getting into the bedroom. The air-con goes off when you are not in your room so gets very hot.
The beds are very low so would be unsuitable for disabled persons, there are lots of stairs and no lift. Due to the beds being so hard we found it difficult to sleep, this was aggravated by all the outside lights being on all night which lit up the room.
Breakfast is just passable, not much choice, cordial not fresh juice and only pineapple or bananas as fruit choice. They do not offer any other meals but coffee and cake is available for a price.
The pool is pretty and clean with a few sun beds but no towels provided.
Its just a two minute stroll to the beach which once you have passed the couple of beach bars is clean and you can walk for miles.
There are a few places to eat with-in walking distance but transport is a must if you want to explore. We were visiting friends near by, otherwise we would have moved on, this could be a lovely place but needs management.

The hotel is rated 3 star by Agoda but it's not even 1 star, it's way over rated. The rooms are very basic, more like rooms in cheap guest houses with worn out furniture, moulded wooden towel rack, some tiles missing the bath room, only shower with plastic curtain, rotten bath mat and toilet was not clean. Furthermore one of the two rooms we had for second night, the pillows had no cases on.

I was charged at around USD86 per room per night but it's worth between USD20-25 or no more than USD35 for weekend. When I made a complaint about how poor the room was with the young manager, she responded that Agoda (who I booked the rooms through) rated the hotel not the hotel's management themselves. Therefore do not trust companies such as Agoda when you do your online reservation. I would be very hesitant next time to book a hotel through this website. My point is I paid for USD86 rooms but got USD35 rooms instead.

I was extremely disappointed with the rooms and was left with bad feeling that I had my brother, sister and niece stay in such a poor accommodation.
