This hotel is in a lovely location over looking the beach close to bars and restaurants, I was pleasantly surprised with the standard of food as I know this hotel have had a lot of bad comments regarding food in the past.
Rooms very tired and badly need to be updated.
On the surface the hotel seems very clean but they really need to keep an eye on little things like mould on the soap dispensers.
The hotel has a really nice large bar area however the entertainment is so dated its not really used as it should be, bars just a few hundred meters away were packed with holiday makers having fun whilst the Kactus had a few dozen people ballroom or line dancing while other guests looked on expressionless.
I found most of the staff very unpleasant who didn't even take the time to pass the time of day with you, I would go as far to say it seemed like guests were tolerated rather than welcomed with open arms.
Roof top terrace nice but the hotel provide no parasols for guests to use, not the best in 30 degree heat.
Wifi terrible even if you pay its still very slow.
Looked to me like this hotel penny pinches, I will not return or recommend this hotel to family or friends.
