I thought this place was really poor value for money!
It is a 20 minute walk into- fine during the day as it is a nice walk past the marina. However at night there is no lighting and feels isolated and scary! Therefore I would say this is not good for elderly people or girls without transport!
We were on holiday from the uk and Shingley beach felt like a total let down. It felt like you were staying in someone's house and not apartments/ hotel. It feels quite run down/ musty.
The accommodation was unserviceable. This ruined the holiday feel a bit for me as it was disappointing to not have beds made/ rubbish taken out etc. if you didn't clean up on departure you would be charged a cleaning fee! This was disappointing and made our check out quite stressful.
When we were there there were no bar/restaurant facilities available. There was no atmosphere to this place at all. We didn't see any other guests and we stayed there for two nights!!!
Service was poor. Unfriendly staff and not offered an early check in or much assistance.
Really do not recommend this place.
