  • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

Check-in was extremely confusing — was told to email my confirmation to the hotel(?). The pool was nice, but the temperature was too cold. Jacuzzi was not warm enough. Staff, for the most part, was friendly and helpful. Spa facilities were nice, but the fitness center/gym was tiny.

  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

Hotel ziemlich in die Jahre gekommen, tote Gegend kein restaurant, direkte Strandlage. Strand wunderschön. Frühstück katastrophal der Raum erinnert an eine Kantine. Toilettenpapier wurde erst am 2. letzten Tag aufgefüllt. Eher von Spanischen Touristen besucht.
