    Wonderful stay!

    Fabulous location just across the road from Town Beach. Spacious 1 bedroom apartment with big balcony & full kitchen. Within walking distance to town & or restaurants nearby. Clean and comfortable. Perfect for a relaxing getaway.

  • 6.0.Good

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. Indoor pool was great. The room needed work though. It appears it needs a really good deep clean. Our feet were black from walking on the carpet. The dust was built up so much on top of the cupboards you could see it hanging over the edge. There were squashed mosquitoes on the walls. A deep clean and new cleaning staff could sort this out though.

    Disappointing rooms

    Our stay was very disappointing. On our arrival to our room we had no cooking facilities that was advertised in the room. We were put into a room with kitchen facilities for 3 nights and then had to return to a room with nothing but a tiny fridge and a kettle for 4 nights. Not the holiday we had planned. The staff were passive aggressive at times in defence of the complaints made. The hotel is nothing like the photos, no bar, no room service, it relies on the beautiful views for their patronage.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The room was clean and it had a good view. However the room was quite small, the toilet was behind the door with a door stopper in a position where I kept stepping on it, which was a bit painful with bare feet.

    It was great to have the space of the apartment and ours had a great view. We loved that it was just across the road to a good swimming beach and a short walk into town. Furnishings were decent and everything was clean.

  • 8.0.Very good

    All facilities were are expected. The only downside was the pool area was noisy and the sound carried. But this is not all the fault of the hotel guests have to be responsible and considerate and some were not.
