Very disappointing for the price, sad and tired resort with very basic ammenities. We stayed for four nights and were very confused by the four star rating. They charge for every extra including toilet paper, washing powder and pool towels, normally a resort provides these things in the price when you are paying good money. The rooms were supposedly refurbished but they smelled damp and the three bedroom villa had not been maintained eg broken blinds and curtains, lights not working,cheap uncomfortable furnishings and the carpet was lifting on the stairs (which was quite dangerous). The outdoor table and chairs in the supposed outdoor area were dirty and in disrepair and the area didn't have grass just dirt which became mud after a little rain, the outdoor area overlooked the main road. The buffet breakfast couldn't keep up with demand, everything continually running out. Only positives were the proximity to the Town Centre, although you need a car or use the shuttle and the staff were friendly. Overall the entire resort was tired and outdated and left us feeling dissappointed.
