Overcrowding with package tourists. Public areas almost inaccessible due to crowding. Smoking in guest rooms and outside obnoxious (despite signage). Overall, the hotel is dated and poorly managed.

The hotel itself was clean, nice pool area. The rooms could be improved, very basic, a lot of mould in the shower!
