  • 8.0.Very good

    The stay was great. The downside was not having a heater but aircon only Sonja's to request extra blankets as I was cold in the evening. The bathroom door was didn't close, had to lock the door for it to close completely. The shower soap dish was close to falling. The room was clean though and in general I would recommend the hotel and sleep there again

    Good holiday destination

    The staff were attentive and the rooms were neat. I did try to contact the hotel on the hotels.com messaging platform but got no response. The hotel is a short walk from the beach and is close to many restaurants

    The Hotel is in a great location and the rooms are big. We were a family of four. 2 kids age 6 & 4 and it was comfortable for us. They don’t clean the rooms everyday....I guess that’s the new normal with COVID-19
