Read all other reviews about this place, so when going l was very skeptical and expected broken things and all that stuff you see and read. We stayed 6 nights and we were 4 girls
Check in was WORST part of trip, informed we had to pay 100euros deposit EACH. This was not mentioned in ANY of the paper work or anything.
so imagine your just informed spot on, first day on a hot day, from an early flight that were gonna take 100euros from ALL of you. and you recieve it end of your trip :(
Room was great, clean and tidy. NOT what we expected from the pictures and reviews. Toilet smelt bad when you opened it. Lovely BIG balcony which connects, so thats your room to the left and living room to the right.
View of the pool which is nice and big.
VERY close to the strip but far enough you cant hear ANY noise or confusion that comes with it.
Bad wireless only available in pool area.
No air conditioning in rooms (shocking as its such a high temp country)
Reception have bad attaitude but l maybe put that down to language barrier and many young people who may have some attitude so they are already not too friendly.
But towards end of the stay they got a liking to us because they could see we dont make noise or misbehave, we respect other guests.
