Ottima struttura, noi avevamo una camera vista mare e siamo stati soddisfatti della vista e dei servizi. Camere in buono stato peccato che mancava un mini frigo dove poteva essere di gran aiuto dato il super caldo della zona. Personale nulla da dire, i ragazzi della hotel molto disponibili e c è la mettono tutta per soddisfare ogni esigenza dell ospite. Noi siamo stati bene. Hotel Consigliato.

Poor 2.0
Probably my worst experience at a hotel ever. The hotel is not child friendly at all! Not friendly for the elderly. To get to the beach you have to walk past the pool and the no barrier stairs to get to the stairs to take you back and then the path way past the rubbish bins to get to the beach. There are no public toilets at the beach. - The pool is not cleaned and the paint rubs off - most likely because it has not been maintained. and I went into the pool and got paint stained to my body. When talking to the manager about it she said she was aware about the paint rubbing off but she didn’t give us any notice about it or warn us not to go in the pool. She then said she would put a sign not to go to the pool and it did not happen during our stay. In the bathroom there was rust pouring out from the taps. The teacups in the room were dirty. Where the toothbrush is made to put the decanter is filthy dirty. Poor communication between the manager and the staff. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The view is amazing and that’s about it. We are never coming back to this hotel and I recommend that no one else does.

Hotel je na klidném místě, kousek od pláže. Personál je milý. Celkově byl pobyt příjemný. Je škoda, že u bazénu je jenom 5 lehátek a místo na pláži není označeno vůbec, takže pokud se nezeptáte nebo vás hned na začátku pobytu neprovedou, tak nevíte, kde to je. K snídani bych doporučila pořídit menu, co vše si mohu objednat. A vzhledem k tomu, že hotel nemá 24 hodinovou recepci, poskytla bych každému z hostů klíče a pořídila klasický zámek na dveře od pláže, aby se v případě návratu z této strany dostal host pohodlně do hotelu. Co se týče úklidu, občas mi přišel chaotický a přijde mi zbytečné i nepříjemné, aby mi k večeru chodil někdo zatahovat moskytiéru, navíc bez předchozího zaklepání.
