Good 7.2 From 10 reviews

Very good 8.0
Very near the beach, Room was basic with large bathroom, shower had very little pressure
Gary, gb2 night romance trip
Poor 2.0
This is definitely the worst hotel we have ever stayed in!! We couldn’t even stay there the first night because the room they expected us to stay in was full of mold and had stained bedsheets. They had no other rooms so we had no choice but to pay again at a different hotel! We went back the next day and checked into a different room but this was still awful with a knackered old bathroom with broken shelves, and we noticed in the morning that the pillows we’d been sleeping on were also moldy!! Honestly this hotel needs total renovation or knocking down. The photos on the web make it look so much better than it is. The only good thing about the hotel was the 2 young staff members who were very sweet and apologetic.
