This "resort" should win an award for having the most deceptive advertising ever ! It is a small, filthy dump. We stayed for 2 nights and couldn't get out of there fast enough.
The room is so small that if you are a family of 4 you will literally be bumping into each other. The "kitchen unit " consists of a cheap plastic table and 3 very small plastic chairs that you would use in your yard, but not in a hotel. The bathroom opens directly into the kitchen and is so small that when you sit on the toilet the sink is right in front of your face. The sink has no counter so there is nowhere to place your personal items. It all looked so old and musty that you didn't even want to shower. I wouldn't even think of using the kitchen area for anything, that's how gross and dated it all was.
Then there was the bedroom....I am convinced there are jail cells that are more comfortable. The floor was filthy with sand all over it, which of course made it's way onto the sheets. The beds were awful and lumpy with old, dirty looking linens. Our room had a door that was attached to another room and we could clearly hear all the noise from the room next door, from their TV to their discussion of what to eat for breakfast. The beds were so close together that you had to crawl in from the end and by the end of the second day my kids were afraid to take their shoes off.I went to bed with the feeling that something was going to crawl on me. The musty smell was overwhelming and putting the air on did not help at all. And because we were on the first floor and near the pool, there were constantly people right outside our window...and let's just say that some of the guests looked very questionable.
The only nice thing I can say about the place is that their little restaurant was convenient and the food was actually pretty good. We had egg sandwiches for breakfast and pizza for lunch and it was good and reasonable. And yes, the location on the beach was good but there are also 100 other motels in the same location.This place is not worth a fraction of the money they charge.
By later in the week we moved into another motel and were very happy and actually plan on returning later in the month.
