Good 6.0
Loud room from air conditioner on roof - but they gave us an upgrade. Rooms are nice but hotel is in desperate need of a renovation. Buffet is meh. Eggs are undercooked. Pool was okay. No beach - just a concrete drop-off. I wouldn’t stay here again, even though it was inexpensive. Hotel staff was nice at least.
Lana, ca4 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Utterly Disappointing.
Huge buffet with really poor quality fooed -Watery scrambled eggs every morning. Luke warm at best staff hospitality. Laundry was charged - PER ITEM. So for my 5 Tshirts and my wife's 5 tops - they would be charged somewhere around 3 euros PER ITEM. Those basic 10 items would cost over 30 euros and take 2-3 days to be returned - unless you want the 'express' service for the same day and pay a 50% surcharge - meaning 4.50 euro per shirt - absolutely insane. But this hotel nickels and dimes you. Internet is super slow but you can pay for the 'premium' internet for 5 euros per day. Ping pong rackets to play at the ping pong table - a charge for the rackets too. Overall a terrible experience!

Awesome Staff make this a 5 Star review
Wonderful spacious room with balcony. Everything was sparkling clean and the staff were sooo helpful. Carmela the amazing evening bar manager is an absolute credit to the hotel and if there was an employee of the year award she should win it. She could not do enough to help us and bent over backwards to ensure we enjoyed any time we spent in the bar. Great buffet breakfast with lots of variety.

Nice but a little tired hotel
Hotel was pleasant and friendly staff but a little tired as built in 1988 and main areas are showing their age somewhat

Room was spacious, unfortunately no balcony only a small window which made the room not very cozy. Cleanliness - floor cleaning seems to be done after each check out, the floor was dusty as of the second half of our stay. Breakfast had a good selection, laddles and serving equipment should be changed more frequently with this high number of customers. Hotel staff were very friendly

Food was not great in the evening however there was good choice around in the day afternoon tea a good idea . Water when arriving in the room would be a nice touch. When we arrived we were given bed and breakfast bands which should have been all inclusive so that was disappointing on the first day as we ended up paying for items which should have been Included
