We stayed here in January for a week. Admittedly, this was not our first preference for accommodation however as everything else was booked out we had to settle here.
We liked being on the beach however the actual hotel is VERY average. The rooms are basic and the bathrooms were not clean - and very small.
Every day, you would literally have to get down to the pool first thing to try and secure yourself a seat - clearly too many guests for pool lounges! And I definitely would not recommend stying here if you are not a smoker as it seemd every person around the pool (and in the pool at the pool bar) continually chain smoked.
Staff spoke very limited English hence trying to organise anything was an effort in itself. And they were not overly helpful.
Although the hotel website promotes this hotel as being quite 'upmarket' and 'luxurious' I would say it is the complete opposite. I would not give it more than 3 stars on a good day. I found the whole place rather tacky and cheap and that includes the clientele!
I will never go back nor would I recommend it to any of my friends.
