While we booked one of the basic rooms at the hotel the setup and furnature in the room looked like it was from back in the 90's. The room did not look anything like the photos. The rest of the resort on a was lovely, amazingly close to the beach. Easy parking and close to lots of shops.

Staff were friendly and helpful at check in. The room was clean and tidy although the bathrooms and toilets could do with a deep clean. The kitchen was fairly well stocked, although some dirty bowls had been put back in to the cupboard. The pool area was clean but the heated pool was closed for cleaning on our last day so we had to use the pool on the other side of the complex which is not heated (although the hot tub is heated so that was great). Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the property.

Our apartment wasn’t air conditioned and the fan in the bedroom didn’t work so the place was like a sauna. Apartment was nice bed was comfortable would be nice in winter. Our room flooded which was nobody’s fault but no compensation offered. Lucky we were able to be out all day while industrial fan was going all day.
