We booked into this hotel expecting a three star hotel and that is what it is. It is not posh but it was very clean. The room was cleaned everyday, very well considering how much sand we seemed to take back with us. The room was comfortable but basic. The staff were mostly friendly and helpful especially the girl on the breakfast desk. The breakfasts were possibly geared more to the europeans but the fresh melon and pineapple was lovely. It is only a 5 minute walk to a lovely beach and close to restaurants and shops.
For a cheap holiday in a warm place this was ideal. Some of the other guests were rather noisy but that could happen in any hotel and I believe that they were asked to quieten down.
The best bit was the panoramic lift
