Negative Reviews


Dated rooms.

Rooms appear old as the paint and plaster on the walls are cracking. Beds are uncomfortable and extra bed requested for is not provided.


Limited amenities in the pool area.

Equipment around the pool like sun beds and parasol are limited and guests arriving later than eight in the mornings do not get to use them. This poses a difficulty especially when children have to use the pool.


Food average, staff unfriendly.

Staff is unfriendly and do not help with issues related to extra beds and food availability at the restaurants. Food is below average and the same menu is repeated almost every night. Activities for entertainment are also not very engaging.
