Worst hotel I have stayed in for a long time. Room very small and basic. To get to your room you have to walk through a busy restaurant and everyone looks at you. Doors have to be slammed to be closed properly so you wake your neighbours or they wake you. Room was dirty with hair on the floor and bathroom sink. Light for the bathroom turns on 3 downlights. There is no bathroom door so it wakes everyone in the room up. Noise from the street is so loud you can’t sleep. Not the fault of the hotel but there was a loud drum going at 1am.

I do not recommend that anyone should stay at this property. The showers are mold-ridden due to very poor ventilation design in every room. I changed rooms and the same issues were in the next. The air conditioning filters have clearly never been cleaned or changed since installation and were dust-packed. The cushions in the pool area were stained and thilthy. The hotel images look nice, but this is not the reality.
