A very basic place. It needs a big overhaul to get it up to a reasonable standard.
The pool looks great, but the boards surrounding it are very uneven, split, and need replacing or repairing. The outdoor chairs are split and uncomfortable, and the casual dining area around the pool needed a big clean up. The floor was dirty grubby (food, leaves and dirt) and needed cleaning up.
The rooms are small but clean.
Bathrooms are tiny and in need of repair/updating.
The highlight is the restaurant. It overlooks the pool. Staff are well trained and helpful. Food is fresh and well presented. Even so, I wouldn't stay there again.
