We didn't end up staying, it did not feel safe. The room smelt awful, the pool was not well cared for and there were some unsavoury characters on site. I requested a refund for the 2nd night even though we didn't stay for more than an hour qnd the Manager told me it was all in my head. Do not recommend.

Unfortunately it was pretty ordinary. The property was lacking in cleanliness and in need of repairs/upgrading. Mouldy shower tiles, shower head wouldn’t stay upright, water pressure was amazingly noisy, damaged bathroom door, poor paint job on from door. Bed linen and towels were clean and comfortable but saírem bed was out of shape and the mattress was in need of replacement. Also nowhere to leave the keys when I wanted to leave early at 7am. Had to come back at 830am.

Panorama was fine for the time I needed to be there overnight. Bed was comfy and shower was warm enough. I did not have anything to do with reception except to pick key up and there was no dining on site.
