I stayed for three nights for business trip. Hotel is perfectly located and a sand beach. Staff is very friendly, especially Nadia helped me a lot with places nearby.
WiFi becomes a real trouble. for every 500 mb, you gotta get another password from hotel frontdesk. Middle of the night or early in the morning, you go down to frontdesk to have the voucher. Quite nonsense.
Food is good but there are a plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes just besides the hotel. Seafood is delicious and cheap.
On my check-out date, Saturday, on 08:00 I was awake with hammer noises and I was told that there is repair work. Saturday! 08:00! Unacceptable at all. No explanations were made and hotel manager just did not call me although it was promised to me when leaving the hotel.
This is still a good place to stay..
