3/5 Okay

Stayed 2 nights in Mar 2019

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The facilities advertised on the Sandele website and on Expedia did not in any way match what we encountered when we arrived. Our advice is not to go to this resort unless you have first hand information from a visitor who has stayed there after 5 March 2019 to confirm the status of the facilities and services
Stayed 7 nights in Mar 2019

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Quite run down, nice beach though. Room was also not very clean. Only one set of towels was provided for me and my partner, and only one chair on the balcony. We also paid to stay in a luxury apartment and were given a standard room.
