Don't be fooled by the star rating. This property gives excellent value for your money. The staff are the best you will find. Helpful in every way. Check this place out!! You won't be sorry..... Great beach, great location. Everything you could want is right there, or a short walk away.

Spent a week at this resort recently. Stay somewhere else. The place needs a complete redo. Our room was very shabby and needed to be updated. In my opinion, the property is run down and is not up to standards. The room was dirty and most of our days we had No hot water. Inexcusable!. I have never been to...

Check in was slow, our first room was so dirty that I had to complain immediately and rather than having housekeeping clean the room to even a substandard state we were moved to a small pokey room which could also of been cleaner.

We have just returned from a perfect 2 week holiday. I just cannot understand bad reviews on this hotel. First impression was a little bit reserved as the buildings appeared a little shabby.

Just got back from our 4th visit January/February 2012. All the staff are so friendly even new staff who didn't know us couldn't be more pleasant. We had fantastic rooms it's worth upgrading to the beach ones. For a 3 star hotel this is very good value indeed. I think some people expect 5 star for 3 star prices after...
