Most evenings there is some form of entertainment. The short 2 minute walk to the...

The rooms are pretty dated. The beds pretty bad (springy and old) We got the all inclusive deal. Food was mostly overcooked and pretty basic. The air con is timed - starts at 2pm and ends at 4am and isnt very strong. The key is linked to the electrics so when you leave the room the air con goes off....
