8/10 Very good

Good stay for short break.
Largely as expected large international-standard hotel. Excellent location right on the beach front with facilities within easy reach. Great breakfast buffet and nice pool area with fantastic views. Service is attentive, if a little slow, staff are friendly, but rooms are beginning to show their age and are a bit dated. Good choice for a short break.

4/10 Fair

Excellent location. However, the property's overall condition is visible suffering. The rooms look old, and the furniture looks like they were bought from a vintage store in the 80s. The service is average. For the price, I would expect more. It is not recommended for families.

Shocking
The hotel only has 220 V plugs. To rent a transformer to get you down to 110V was difficult and we were told we could only have it for 15minutes. Even more shocking than their odd electrical was their service. Room service needed to be paid for on the spot as opposed to charging to the room. And while the staff was friendly enough they seemed incapable of providing service.
