I was a little apprehensive about staying having read some of the reviews but with a 6 night stay during peak season costing £300 per room, I set myself realistic expectations before going and was pleasantly surprised.
The reception staff were very welcoming on arrival. My friend and I had a twin bed with Sea views. The hotel is just 400 metres walk from the beach and lots of shops/restaurants very close by. There is free wifi available which is an added bonus, so you can connect your smartphone though the signal was a bit weak in the room.
The rooms were fairly basic but more than acceptable for our purpose of somewhere to sleep and get ready for evenings. The bathroom was clean and had everything one needed. The beds were fairly comfortable but with no air conditioning it did get rather hot at night. There is no safe in the room and the door locks were a bit old however we didn't have significant valuables so felt our belongings were safe. We only ate the free breakfast once but there was plenty of food on offer.
One thing to note is the hotel is locked about 12.30/1am each night so if like us you get back later then you have to bang on the door and awake the night porter!
I would say the hotel is more in the 2 star category from experience but I didn't have any complaints given what we paid. I would recommend the hotel if you're looking for
