We (family of four) stayed here for 2 nights in April. Everywhere was very clean, the rooms basic but functional. We had two rooms, both had fans, One was much hotter than the other but had a lovely pool facing balcony. The pool is lovely and a definite selling point. This place does not have the same quality of service...

We have stayed as Akhil before and we have always liked it. There are countless reasons why it is such a good destination: • The pool - a large pool in a very scenic position with a smaller attached pool for toddlers, perfect for families • Beautifully landscaped and tranquil grounds • Excellent rooms with en-suite bathrooms and aircon -...

We chose the hotel as they have a pool. The sea can have strong currents and big waves, making it tricky for swimming. We had been travelling and really appreciated the chance to spend quiet time by the pool. It can get busy, so there are not always any sunbeds free, but they do have extra cushions and towels, which...

My partner and I spent three wonderful nights here. We stayed in a cottage which was a bit more expensive but was really nice. Was clean and spacious. The pool area was nice and it was very peaceful. It was kept very clean with towels etc. We ate dinner there once which was good and had a reasonably priced breakfast....

Cons The room is very basic. To our surprise our room didn't even have a TV but the housekeeping installed a really small one after we complained. There were ants in the room. There was no tea maker in the room either. Pros The resort is near the beach (6-10min walk) and it has all basic amenities like swimming pool...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in Jan. The double room we were allocated was so small we were tripping over our suitcases. The beds were uncomfortable and the bedding was not the cleanest (lucky I had my own bedsheets). The bathroom was small but clean. We had to keep asking for clean towels as the towels had...

It is 5 minute walk to the beach and has a nice pool. The rooms are functional with clean toilets. The bed linen seems to have found it's way here from other hotels. .. our bedsheets were from calfouti and pillow covers from hotel Raj. They have a restaurant with decent food and a beer license.
