The food is good and well presented on the buffet. The atmosphere in the dining room is somewhat lacking due to it being really old and somewhat 'tired'. The rooms are terrible! The furniture is old, the beds are uncomfortable, the bathrooms are old and inadequate and the bathroom wasn't properly cleaned which was rather off putting. That being said, the hotels location is excellent, the swimming pool area is great, the hotel is right on the beach with the waves crashing in the background, and the staff are generally friendly and most helpful. As I'm a frequent traveller and am fortunate to stay in numerous hotels, I feel that if money was spent on this hotel, it would be a first-class holiday destination due to its proximity to the beach and what it has to offer.
