Location is brilliant - right on the beach. The bed and linen was always clean and the staff very nice. That's where the good description ends. Our room bore no resemblance whatsoever to the rooms on the website. No wood floor - we had patched black carpet. No designer bathroom - very tiny toilet and shower room with the tile effect coming away from the wall. One open rail and some boxed shelving - no doors or drawers, hence everything on display - underwear, jewellery, laptop, kindles, money, passports, all out in the open. No security at all. The house is really quite dark and dreary despite being painted in very garish colours. It is not the bright, light looking building depicted on the website. It is very expensive for what you get. Our relatives were in an apartment block next door with 2 bedrooms, beautiful lounge, bathroom and fitted kitchen which was considerably cheaper! We would never return.
