We went there in November 2013. The bungalows are definitely ok and also clean. Just the beds are way too soft, and if you travel as a couple you don't really like separate beds pushed together.
But beware of an all inclusive offer! The food is really bad, you'll hate yourself paying for this. It's the cheapest ingedients you can get, And one kind of cheese. We were on half board, only went to the restaurant for dinner once. For breakfast only the coffee (in the big, old machine) and the bread was tolerable, and one kind of cheese. So if you're catched by the attractive price keep in mind you have to at least go for dinner somewhere else every evening.
Besides that the hotel is kinda nice situated, not too far from the beach. Buses go regularly, staff was nice, too.
