We recently stayed here for 2 nights as part of a large party. After reading previous reviews we were expecting the worse but were pleasantly surprised.
Yes, we would agree that a little TLC would not go a miss and certainly all the bedrooms we saw could do with a little investment.
We had a small room with a cabin style bed, the type where you have to climb over one another. However it was extremely clean and we got a decent nights sleep.
Also struggled with WiFi in the room, and it was only slightly better in reception.
We could not fault the bathroom with 'modernish' fittings, plenty of hot water and clean fluffy towels.
The reason we would be happy to return is first of all the staff. Everyone was extremely friendly and very helpful. All the staff seem to work very hard and nothing is too much trouble.
Secondly every meal we had was amazing and of excellent quality. The chef deserves a bonus , I am going to leave a restaurant review too, because the food is so good.
Final points - this hotel does not break the budget and it is just opposite the beach.
