I was taken to my room and we went by stairs, then we caught an elevator, then more stairs, then another elevator...then climbed more stairs, seriously!! It appears the hotel is built on the side of a hill and my room was near the top.
I asked for another room and was taken to a room next to the pool with a slight sea view. It was ok although the air con was noisy.
This is a large holiday hotel, it's big and ordinary....but it's cheap!! There's nothing great to write about this hotel, and other than the trek if you get a bad room there's nothing too bad to write for the price. If you pay $30 for a hotel room you can't expect new luxury!
There's restaurants all around the hotel area and it's not too far to walk to the beach. When it rains some of the walk ways become dangerously slippery.
I will book another hotel next time I'm in the area.
