Small cosy room
The room was a bit small and cosy. No wall cupboards. We stayed at the hotel for 6 days. The breakfast was good. Was provided with plenty of coffee and tea sachets in the room. 5 minutes walk to the beach and easu excess to the town. All in all was a good holiday experience for us.

There was not enough water into the shower to have a proper shower. That was the only problem cause the rest was fine.

Good value stay but no wifi in the rooms
A good value stay. Good breakfasts, very helpful and friendly staff, good service. Condition of the hotel is not exceptional, room was clean, reasonably decorated and functional with clean cotton sheets. The standard size double bed was bit a bit too firm for my taste. Ensuite shower worked well but only had a shower curtain attached to the upper frame from what was a previously removed shower door. The Wifi was intermittent and could only be relied on in the centre of the communal areas (there are dead zones in places) and it wouldn't reach the room at all. THEY "DON'T ADVERTISE WIFI IN THE ROOMS".
