It was alright... Posted 19-Sep-2012
The adage 'you get what you pay for' was seemingly invented for this hotel. I got a decent deal on this "3 star" for all-inclusive but was none the less wary given reviews on here and just the simple fact it was so cheap and only a 3 star. So how much bang do you get for your buck? Well, the food was alright, not great, but alright. Sure, like any AI, the buffet style gets a bit repetitive, but I was always able to find food to satisfy. The pizzeria in the hotel provides a nice change up of food if you get sick of the buffet, but the service can be pretty slow. The rooms are superficially cleaned, but there were any number of cob webs, orangey grout and ants festooning my walls, not to mention the rusty bed with basic mattress. That being said, the air con in my room worked a treat and the fairly private patio I had was nice if i wanted a break from the pool area. The pools at the hotel are unsurprisingly, the focal point for most guests, but there was never any problem getting a lounger and there didn't seem to be too much of the 'claiming' first thing in the morning nonsense. It was good to see staff cleaning the pool and the surrounding areas at night and in the morning. I spoke to one couple who had been sold the hotel as a 4 star plus. Please be clear, this is only just about a 3 star. The hotel is located pretty close to the nearby town, where there are any number of decent and pretty cheap food and drink outlets should you fancy a trip out of the hotel.
