Reviewed 29 January 2012

In September 2011 we stayed here, it turned out to be the worst holiday ever! sheets, bedding and towels were not changed for a week we then had to ask for them to be changed a numberous of times then was finnaly changed otherwise they wouldnt have been changed thoughout our 10 days there! our air con was held together by platers which didnt work! food was so poor that we had to eat out even though we paid for all inclusive, what food we did have was repulsive and had insects in it ( maybe a cockroaches)! no entertainment at all. pool was dirty and never cleaned. we asked for a family room yet we had a double room for four people bonkbed was not stable and was a safty hazard. This hotel was flithy and would not recomend here to anyone!

Stayed: August 2011, travelled with family

Good luck if you are booked to go here. I was there last week when the bailiffs turned up and gave us notice to get out the rooms straightaway. The place was all locked up in a matter of minutes, and the free bar was emptied even quicker by the guests.

Luckily we got transferred to another hotel fairly quickly.

Just returned from a weeks stay at this hotel and am glad I wasnt there for two!

The rooms were basic and though the brochure stated that the hotel had been "recently refurbished" I could not see this at all because it all looked very tired. We did not lay at the hotel pool once during our stay at all because we could not get a sun bed - so we went to the beach and missed lunch every day! Its a good walk to the beach and though easy enough for most travellers if you were not in good health it might be too far (I would say more than the 400m stated in the brochure). Most of the sunbeds poolside were broken and there were not nearly enough for the size of the hotel. No entertainment at all in September and the atmosphere round the poolside bar (the only one open during our stay) was not great.

Cleaning was not of a high standard, either of the room or the communal areas. Some of the all inclusive drinks were absolutely awful - do NOT try the strawberry daquiri - it could strip paint. Food was basic and very limited in choice and I felt catered for other guests from other parts of Europe more than British visitors.

The staff were friendly and helpful but in my view it is not a 3.5 star hotel at all more like 2.

Room Tip: The hotel has 3 floors and no lift - and no porters.
