Lovely foyer and entrance to the hotel. Rooms clean but very dated. Outdoor spa toilets could do with a repair but the outdoor pool was great. We stayed on the fifth floor, corridor also very stated and had that old movie, spooky feel about it, quite dark. Breakfast was good, lots to choose from.

You walk into your room to find your bedsheet with stains, hair... Gross. I'm assuming the person who came to have a look was the manager who agreed they were dirty and removed it. I didn't realise till night that the sheets inside were also stained. Besides the bed, the lights on the wall, the balcony door all had cob web. The bath tub wasn't cleaned well. The fridge was gross, had brown stains.. last day of check out as we pack I realise my milkshake was missing from the fridge.... There was only one! I was ready to make a complaint till my husband stopped me saying they may not believe me since I have already made complains. Oh yes you have four guest but your given three pool towels and asked to use from the three provided in the bedroom? So what happens after? Very pissing off when you meant to share. Same thing next day only three new towels provided. I'm not going back again. Disappointing and issues with WiFi.

Family of four we were upgraded to a deluxe room for no extra charge! All staff at the reception very attentive and polite, special mention to Kayla who was very helpful and recommended great place to eat. Kids enjoyed the pool, room was nice and clean. Some noisy guests but that is no fault of the hotel. Will happily stay here again!
