Just got back on 27th Sept 2013, very pleased to be home.
This is a very old, very tired, and worn out, dated hotel. It has 400+ rooms, housing up to 900 guests, which it simply cannot cater for. Goods and bad's listed below. If you still decide to book this hotel after reading these facts, then good luck! but let me be the first to say "I told you so!"
1) Pretty beach side location, nice view of the cove (have to pay extra for this though)
1) Over populated with guests
2) Not enough resources or amenities for its guests
3) Small rooms
4) Sewage smell everywhere including room
5) No fridges in room
6) No hair dryers
7) Air conditioning in room just does not work, and smells terrible (reason is because its not cleaned nor maintained that's how legionnaires disease is caused!)
8) Food in restaurant is not very good, bland, and tasteless, and is total chaos, you will queue for a table, queue for food, queue for a bread roll, queue for everything
9) Pool is tired looking, and small, only about 60 sun beds, and 10 umbrellas, gates open at 9 am, people queue from 8.30am to get in the gates to grab a sun bed ( so the other 800 guest dip out) a joke!
10) Beach is tiny, not enough space to layout a hankie
11) The Hotel does have a rear terrace with sun beds, but they have the audacity to charge you to use them!!!
12) The hotel Staff do not listen to complaints I think that they actually believe that you are privileged to be staying there!
13) Not good value for money, much better available for a lot less.
14) Wifi soooosloooooow
Honestly I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture!
