  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

This property is great if you want peace and quiet. There is really nothing to do here except swim in the pool. The rooms are a long way from reception, cafe, restaurant and pool. The weather was awful when we were here and there are no covered walkways to get to any of the above.
