Hotel situation perfect. facing the beach almost central. Shame the staff and condition let it down. Rooms shabby and in need of updating. Stayed with friends and one couple's room was disgusting Toilet filthy unflushed and smelly curtains hanging off the wall and really dirty room, offered another room which was worse. Meals basic and average. Evening meals ordered in the morning and whoa betide you turning up 10 minutes late, you get shouted at and told its gone...How it was ordered in the morning.Regular that they run out of choices. Staff obviously unhappy as the talk between them consisted of moaningand swearing about be overworked and that some people get preferntial treatment about weekends off,depending who they are dating. Bar area is a sweatbox in the basement and poor entertainment.
