Everybody at this hotel is Italian. Also the guards will come up and talk to you all the time when you are trying to read and relax in the beach chairs. Further this area is super touristy and it gets really annoying when everyone is trying to sell you something or trying to get you to take a tour with them.

1/5 Terrible

avoid at all costs...
Avoid at all costs!!! Although I was fretted well at reception I was also greeted by a cockroach running across the floor of my room as soon as I entered... It gets worse. It was late I was tired and given the area immediately outside the hotel it was NOT safe to leave the hotel at night. I had no option but to eat in the hotel 'restaurant', a filthy, barren dull shell. I went directly to to a counter where there was a lonely young waitress. I was immediately greeted again by several cockroaches running across the counter and the waitress before I had a chance to run she opened a menus for me and a large cockroach ran out from it.... What amazed me even more was the fact that the young waitress saw nothing wrong with this!!!! Hotels.com please remove this hotel from your list.

3/5 Okay

Good place, big, good room, nice pool and good location! Shower was cold always. Dinner at their restaurant was ok, but after i got sick, stomachaches and vomits..not if its was their food but only started after dinner there, i was staying in other places on the island and was fine! Manager understood upr situation and gave a discount on the price..! Good wifi! But only close to reception, dont work on the rooms..
