Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
We waited a long time to check in as our room was not ready. We had to ask for hairdryer and toilet paper (6 night stay 2 toilet rolls for 4 guest). We lost power to our room on one morning. Had to ask reception to fix it. No room service at all over the 7 days. The buffet brekky was delicious
