we have just returned from a holiday here and its pretty much your average hotel.
The all inclusive is standard although I didn't have much choice being a vegetarian but the snack bar helped.
The bar staff were all lovely but the receptionists I found to be very rude and clearly had no time for us. one of them couldn't speak a word of English!
The rooms were basic but were kept nice and clean although one of the duvet covers had holes in them ..
the bathroom was a nightmare, every time you shower the water would run from the back down onto the floor and we would have a flood every time!
We played mini golf one day and you have to leave a 10 euro deposit! the course itself is quite good but it was absolutely filthy !!!
Something that really annoyed me is that on arrival I was made to pay around 4 euros for something that wasn't even explained to me ... and yet we were all inclusive!
if we had known when we booked that the hotel would be housing school trips we wouldn't have bothered going. we couldn't get near the outdoor pool so we decided to wait to use the spa .. big mistake, the groups of kids were allowed in there too and kept prating around in the Jacuzzi, it should be an adult on section in my eyes. The outdoor pool was a let down, the pictures show it to have a swim up bar .. this I definitely not the case, it looks like its been shut for a while this was a huge let down and their leaflets and maps all need updating as they are way out of date !
also during our stay there must have been work being done nearby because we were woken up every morning to loud explosions and even late at night it happened. also if you plan on wanting a remote for the TV be prepared to fork out 20 euros for it bit steep considering that's probably what the actual TV is worth.
Overall the hotel was average, its a good location, as I said bar staff are lovely, we were put in a pretty good room so all in all we were pretty pleased.
just hope they make a few changes.
don't be too put off by negative reviews you get what you pay for.
