Our bungalow was clean, quite modern, close to the beach and suitable for a short getaway and some exploring.

The villa is well equipped and it has a great view from the large deck/balcony at the front of the property. It's got everything you'd ever need for a nice stay. However, the top of the bedheads were covered in thick dust and almost half of all the plates, mugs and cutleries were dirty before we even used them. They need to get a new cleaner that can do a better job.

Our bungalow was fantastic we stayed for 4 nights /5 days . We would of liked some clean towels and rubbish removed on the second or third day but this didn’t happen untill the evening before we left . Upon leaving the car park to our bungalow we had to walk through a wall of smoking cleaners very unpleasant. I wouldn’t recommend bungalow number 1 as it’s right next to a gate that people slammed all through the night and day . The location is perfect right near the beach and could be very relaxing if not in bungalow 1. Thebes was so comfortable and the shower and bath fantastic . Also upon arriving back at the car park on Saturday night there was a car parked across the entry to the carpark so obviously no security around we had to park on the road

The room, the spa, the view and proximity to everything was great. The shower pressure and mattress were a let down. Especially the shower pressure.
