The rooms were clean ,but desperately in need of renovation as soon as possible,especially bathroom.
In the room air condition was working well.There were tea and coffee facilities ,but no fridge ,no mini bar.Hotel is described as being near the beach,but you've to cross two busy streets to get to the beach to find the sign that swimming is forbidden, because of the sharks(there are no safety nets at sea )You've to pay for internet access 6 $ per hr and the connection is very weak.The neighborhood is not save ,especially at night time.You should avoid going out in the evening.On the Hotel website,the breakfast buffet looks quite nice,in reality you get one type of cheese,two kinds of meat, some fried sausages and scrambled or boiled eggs.If you've have to stay in this hotel be warned that the lift is often out of order,so it's better to choose ground floor room :). To get to the communal swimming pool you have to cross couple busy streets ,because this is no swimming pool in the hotel.
