At check-in, I was informed the air conditioner was broken and given a discount which was fine but then I was allocated the wrong room. After a not-so- bright 'manager' finally rectified the situation, I finally got to my room. I would stay again, although it's very over-priced. Your paying for the view as the room's very stock standard.

The location was excellent. The property was straight across the road from the beach and beach pool. Restaurants were a short walk away and the Sicilian on the ground floor of the Dorsal was fabulous.
