I stayed here around two and a half years ago and since then with new name, new management and likely new owners it has gone down hill. The studio one bar was closed for renovation 2 1/2 years ago, guess what- it's still closed. what a waste of a good venue. I have been here for 6 days and the main restaurant has opened once for dinner only because there were large groups in the motel. So no groups = no restaurant open. I put in a maintenance request for change of a light bulb, this took 3 days to acknowledge. It caters very much for the Muslim guests i.e. no alcohol with meals, no pork meals etc. The bar is situated on the beach and serves only beer. no wine or spirits. The whole place needs a renovation to spruce it up a bit-very old and drab. Also lack of power points in rooms and no mini fridge available. On a positive, the food is good when available without walking 500-600 meters to get it.
