Needs a makeover
Room in need of makeover, view into an alleyway containing ventilation units for neighbouring hotel so quite noisy. Small room and tiny bathroom. Staff pleasant and check in easy. Would not return due to the shabby condition of hotel.

Very happy with price & location
The location was perfect for us. Voucher for welcome drink, beach towels, buffet breakfast, free Wi-fi all included in resort fee. Closet light didn’t work, nor did a lamp, Family of three in a room - only two sets of towels, had to go & get bedding for the pull out sofa-bed. Staff very friendly & helpful though! Pleased for the amount we paid!
