On the good side: A big hotel where, despite being there at new year's eve, everything worked reasonably. The private beach is an advantage, although the black sand and muddy water removes some of the enchantment.
On the down side: The rooms are bit worn out; bathrooms are very small and were not very clean (hairs in the shower and some strange spots on the door); the private beach does not compensate the distant location; bad sound insulation between rooms; average service level; absurd price (it was peak season, but it was still absurd).
In the overall, it is a good hotel, but not an extraordinary hotel.
