    Place is very old fashioned.... We booked as a group months in advance to then be told we were staying in two different hotels on opposite sides of the resort. There seemed to only be one member of bar staff to serve all 3 hotel bars which again are on opposite sides of the resort, so getting a drink took ages. Not a lot of options for food as restaurants closed early, the reason we were given was that it was "off season". The one place that was open was an Italian restaurant where it took over an hour to get a pizza.

    The beds were comfy

    The place is a kip & something out of Chernobyl.There was one barman to cover the resort what a joke. The corridors smelt of damp and our room had white stains of some sort on curtains. Fire alarm went off early in the morning which apparently is regular occurrence. The price was a Rip off and if had choice wud stay anywhere but here

    Nothing

    We paid £168 for one night in this hotel. This hotel was terrible! It smelt of dampness and cigarettes! The room was tiny, the carpets were stinking, the shower door wouldn’t even open. When we went down to the bar to order drinks we were told that there was no bar man available at the moment and that it would be 20 minutes before he could come. We were also told that the bar was closing at 10pm!! The breakfast staff were very rude. When I asked for an egg the staff member grunted at me and the staff member who greeted us at breakfast had an awful attitude and was quite cheeky to us. After breakfast we returned to our room for a shower and a lie down. When we got back to the room it was completely stripped (we had not checked out yet). See photo. The bed was stripped and all the towels were removed from the room. We complained to the receptionist when we checked out. She gave us no need and didn’t care really. We left this hotel without being able to get a shower and felt absolutely robbed! For the facilities and standard of these rooms you would expect to pay £80 - £100 max. Not £168 worth!! Some of the smoke alarms looked dodgy and I doubt this hotel would pass health and safety tests. Absolutely terrible!!! Please don’t waste your money by staying here.

    Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was very good.

    For price, rooms were a bit shabby - needing repaint. Tea making facilities were not clean. Bath panel was in a poor condition Bar was closed early and we had to go to another part of the complex for a drink which was very inconvenient.
