Stayed here from 28th August - 4th September 2012. Room was on the ground floor (Room 118) and was a good size. However, me and my friend got bitten alive by mosquitoes - I counted 8 mosquitoes in the bathroom on one day. Not very pleasant. Bit of staining on the shower curtain, room curtain and walls. Strange shoe prints on the walls and ceiling (god knows how they got there). Had a TV where the only English speaking channel was CNN. Fridge and Air-Con worked well. Had to pay a deposit for the remote for the air-con and TV however. The rooms where cleaned regularly (if we weren't sleeping off the night before), and I found it good that towels got changed even when we were sleeping.
Food was average. Salad, fish, chicken....the normal. Nothing special. Never visited the pool as when we went all the sun loungers were 'reserved' with towels. There seemed to be more towels than people so just visited the beach to sunbathe. I would advise future guests to pay the deposist for the safe aswell. Safe was directly across from the reception which was a peace of mind. Never had anything stolen (I had seen previous guests had). Location is good if you don't mind being in the centre of all the hussle and bussle. Think I'd prefer somewhere quieter next time but that is my preference. Not much bother with noise in the hotel itself, except for the last night but sleep was disturbed anyway due to sickness so was probably more sensitive to disturbances.
One complaint is that one of the reception staff was scary, mean and unreasonable. Would not allow our friends to sit in our room for 10 mins one night when we freshened up to go back out and he chucked them out. He said this was due to the music being loud......it wasn't really. Let himself into our room too. Not a pleasant man at all so beware!
All in all, average hotel. Left with bites all over my body. Food average. Staff ok except one. In a busy area. Would stay again but only if I really had to.
