Room at first seemed clean but towards the end there was an ant invasion that was on the balcony, i explained to the maid and on arrival back in room i found the ant invasion had moved into the room itself, as it was my last night and i had arrived back to the room late after the maid had finished her duties i put up with the ants running around the room walls and across the threshold of the bathroombut it was not nice dodging aroung them , unfortunately it spoilt my stay at the hotel.

Fab location great value
This hotel is basic but what you pay for it’s great. Location is best ever and Eddys bar over the road is great for food and staff and open till late but you don’t hear anything. High floors over pool get the best views

Very pleased with our stay
We absolutely loved our stay! I was slightly worried before we arrived. We booked our trip last minute and this was the only hotel available at a reasonable price. The reviews weren’t great but the photos looked nice so decided to take a chance. I’m so glad we did and we were so pleasantly surprised. The hotel was spotless as was our room. Check in wasn’t until 3 but our room was ready before 1 which was great after an early flight. We were on the same level as the pool which was so handy. Hotel is so close to the old town centre and the beach. Lots of restaurants and shops close by. Couldn’t fault the location at all. However with a pram or wheelchair I don’t think the hotel would be a great choice! Pool is a really nice space, plenty of loungers and a beautiful view. Pool itself is really nice but it definitely needs some work. If they don’t get the broken tiles sorted soon someone is really going to be injured. We choose not to eat breakfast in the hotel but did eat across the road in eddys, a fry was only £3.90 We would definitely return as a couple but don’t think we would come here as a family holiday with our daughter. Definitely just perfect for a couple or friends coming away to the sun for a few days/week I honestly wouldn’t be out of by any negative reviews and would just book it. For the price they offer and the location it’s definitely value for money

The photos of this hotel did not portray an accurate account of the property. Rooms were old, small and did not provide the usual amenities such as shampoo etc.
