3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service
Great location and comfortable room. I don't mind the lack of a reception area, but it was too difficult to find a contact number where someone could provide us with the code to enter our room.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The website said there was a pool. I chose the place for the pool as I have kids. I was only informed when I asked that it wasn’t in use. The fold out couch bed was very uncomfortable, there was no exhaust fan in the bathroom, our door lock was broken and had to be fixed and we had to go out. The phone was often unattended. We were told that it was safe to leave our things in the room with a broken lock and that the attendant would watch our stuff but we couldn’t see her. The bedroom is very hot. The bright outdoor lights come through the blinds at night making it hard to sleep. The only real positive was the location but I would have been happy to be further from the beach with a better place. I was disappointed

Easy contactless check in. Clean, large accommodation. Able to contact staff if required. However, the pool is not available to guests which was disappointing. It was one of the reasons we booked here.
