    Stay away from this dump

    Absolutely terrible experience. It was 100 degree and no working AC. Very very loud non working AC. I asked for a different room and was told all rooms were the same. I left for a tour when I returned the AC was leaking some black stuff and some AC parts had fallen out. I demanded a new room. Received another room and no AC unit working their either. Stay far away from this dump.

    The hotel was within walking distance of the Bugibba square and was opposite the street of a great dive centre. Unfortunately the hotel room had dirty sheets, the room wasn’t cleaned at all during our stay, we had to ask for clean towels at reception which you get handed and no one collects the dirty ones. The area it is in looks less than desirable and we were warned to take our valuables with us to the dive centre, especially as there was no room safe and the key system at reception to prove its your room doesn’t actually get enforced. The help desk for tours and local knowledge was useful and when they are not there the sign says ask reception. Unfortunately reception just say ask the help desk when they are back. A couple of others we dived with actually complained and left the hotel with their money back to get another hotel it was that bad for them. Overall not a great stay and not worth £65 a night. Don’t be fooled by the nice looking reception area as it conceals the other issues.

    During 35 plus degrees weather, we was left with out any air conditioning for the entire holiday, some of the staff didnt seem to care. Due to the heat, i was unable to slep for the first 4 nights. The swimming pools are nice, but the showers and toilets leading to them are filthy The lift next to my room was broken so had to walk up and down 63 steps every time i wanted to go anywhere

    Stayed 8 nights in Jul 2019


    The air conditioning didn’t work, portable one they provided leaked water from it. Rooms were not cleaned everyday. Staff were moody, only friendly staff members were the maintenance staff. The room was dirty. I paid for an apartment and got a room. The shower and toilet were horrible. Breakfast was not cooked properly.

    Best bits is its very near beach loads of nice shops. Easy to get anywhere from bus terminus along road . Not so good is air con not working ,widow catches broke and some windows unsafe to open .tv had no remote and the bed linen was dirty with someones blood ,towels not cleaned for days and missing and cracked crockery in appartment. Staff on reception were very pleasant as too were the staff in the bar and cleaning lady. Badly in need of a refurb and some tlc. You do get what you pay for. It didnt stop us enjoying our holiday .
