4/10 Fair

I made my checkin at 1:00 am and they gave me a room, as soon I woke up they made me move out from the room stating that I should be downgraded. No superior room, no sea view. Rude receptionist

Not worth it; Wifi not working, tiny rooms
My wife and I spent 5 days recently and we were very disappointed. The wifi signal didn't reach our room and despite our complaints to reception they didn't fix it. Furthermore, the toilet and shower doors didn't close properly and the rooms are so small that you don't even have space for your luggage.

Love this hotel! Have stayed twice and will again.
I have stayed two times at this hotel, once in Sept. 2020 and again in May 2021. The location is excellent. It is very clean and well furnished. The staff also are very friendly and helpful. I was eating dinner alone and the waiter jokingly sat down at the table and called another waiter over to take our order saying that he could be my date. LOL. The location of this hotel is very close to restaurants and shops as well as right on the beachfront. My only area to recommend for improvement would be the breakfast...and this is difficult I realize due to covid restrictions. However, the hotel needs more staff working during breakfast to avoid long lines and wait times for food. The workers were clearly working very hard, but there were just not enough of them.

Not worth the price you pay for
Overall ok but hotel is a bit old. Bathroom does not give privacy and not comfortable yet wasn’t very clean. We also booked parking 2 weeks in advance and was confirmed by staff but when we arrived it was no longer available because given to somebody that prolonged their stay. We were not even notified. Very disappointing and unprofessional. Breakfast not exceptional as written in their review but it may be due to Covid measure that we’re quite well. Location is very convenient. The price is not worth the stay at all. I’ve been in much better hotel For much less.

8/10 Very good

Amazing view but bad staff
You would need to book a parking spot in advance prior to arriving hotel, and it is about 3 mins walk to the carpark from the building. But the hotel location is amazing, right in front of beach and rooms are comfortable and able to accommodate my 4 pax family (3 beds + 1 extra). However, the reception staff and the staff at breakfast venue could do with a little bit of kindness. They are not friendly and almost refused my husband entry to cafe for breakfast because the 3 of us were already seated. We only asked that the staff be more polite instead of refusing him rudely. View from pool is amazing tho, almost made up for the bad service.
