Hotel situated near the ocean - 200 meters. Breakfast all time the same, but if you can eat you can do it. Room is clear and with bathroom and toilet. Bed is for me normal to sleep. Swimming pool and bar are very good and nice.
Hotel is in a good location being close to restaurants, shops and beach, all within walking distance. Hotel rooms could do with updating and those located further away from the pool bar lack access to WiFi. Breakfast adequate to start your day with omelettes, fried or scrambled eggs being made to order. Staff extremely helpful and friendly.
On arrival swift room allocation .First impression of the room a prison cell bars up all the windows prisoner cell block H ! THE door had gaps all around . the toilet was bodged up with a plastic bag around the ball valve to stop it leaking and didn't fill properly the double glass sliding doors had a crack in the glass all across it the windows wrattled at night when he wind blew so I stuck a piece of cardboard in it ! the shower lost more water down the joint than came out the shower head ! room dark and dingy need I go on .
The night club at the rear has music until 5am that bounces off the walls in the room I had so not much sleep ! when music stops then the taxi men take great delight in honking their horns for another 10 mins then morning howling prayers
Bath towels are collected from your room at 8am ! returned later in the day great so if u haven't got a towel u cant dry your hands or shower after 8am !
Very basic room all in all must say a great big double bed in room and that's all !
Breakfast is basic .
The restaurant on site I must say does great food and stacks of choices at competive prices . I ate here in evening for 3 nights save getting harassed by the guys in the street which is very stressful I mite add and an utter pain .
The pool was lovelly .
The little garden at the beginning of the hotel by the pool had stacks of birds frequently that was a bonus and monkeys popped in too .
