Nice Stay
Upon arrival we were greeted at the nice looking reception and as we were early and the room not ready we were ushered towards the shopping area. Once we got our room (serene wing) the room was very nice and spacious, The bed was incredibly hard though and I found the floor which was painted rather than tiled slippery with shoes on The room had a balcony overlooking the pool which was very pleasing to the eye, however you need to use the blinds and curtain if you require privacy in your room as the other block is directly in front of you. The WiFi was probably the worst I've experience in a very long time. The connection kept dropping and even when connected simple things like email didn't always work Breakfast had a wide variety of foods (English, Russian, Chinese etc) and was useful as it did not mean having to walk off site to eat During our stay we had some guest that were quite loud (slamming doors and shouting at 4am). When I complained to the staff there lack of English made me wonder if I was being understood. This was on our penultimate night so whether they sorted or not I will never know Overall, I had a good stay and after walking around and seeing the alternatives I feel we had great value for money. Tip: For lunch/ dinner go outside the vehicle entrance turn left and head towards the elephant cafe.and restaurant next door. Much better food for the money.

An enjoyable stay
Our second stay here, and the hotel is starting to look a little worn. The hotel is in a great location, only 5 minute walk to the beach. If you leave out of the rear entrance there are some fab places to eat (Elephant Cafe) and a great family friendly bar, Roadhouse.

Relaxing Holiday
Stayed @ this hotel 4 years ago in a jacuzzi room must say having just returned from our 2nd visit the bathroom was looking a little tired. The fixtues need replacing and the wallsneed redecorating, other than that everything else was spot on with nice eateries very close by and access close to the beach
