The hotel rooms are very dark with no proper windows. There are no decent communal areas to sit in. Sadly the website led us to believe that there would be plenty of activities provided by the hotel and we booked to stay for 5 nights. This was far too long as there is not really much provided by the hotel...

“We had a room that had a covered bathroom. What I didn't like about it was that, although it had a window, it was totally covered in some kind of grille so you couldn't see out. I felt claustrophobic.”
