Only stayed a night, was a bit concerned it was going to be a bit grungy but the room was tidy and the beds clean and comfy, the meal at the onsite restaurant was excellent as was the service.

Pros: We got upgraded to a two bedroom unit, as there was no record of our booking.
Cons: The security door locks didn't work, and when we mentioned it to staff they supposedly came and locked our door but turned out it wasn't.
Location: Close to beach & shops.
Facilities: Locks didn't work on door; Value: Affordable, Inexpensive, Economical, Great value.; Staff apologised to us for the locks not working and told us that they would be fixed immediately.
