Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness
It was just an average hotel.. the location and the pool was awesome. Right on the beach. But the food and cleanliness is terrible. Breakfast was just bad, food is tasteless. My room had blood stain on the shower curtain and had stains on the sheet. It didn’t really bother me cos I was only sleeping on one of the beds but if I had another person sleeping on the stained sheet, that would be unacceptable. Room service only changed the sheet but didn’t clean the bathroom and the rest of the room. The balcony is nice, overlooking the beach but filthy.

Wouldnt stay here again
Old hotel that has been given a very half-hearted makeover. The hotel grounds and layout has so much potential as every room gets a gorgeous view of the sea. But the place is let down by poor maintenance. Ants in the room, a toilet with no shower stall and toilet roll holder, music blaring from the bar downstairs till past 1am, the list goes on. Wouldnt stay here again.
