2/10 Poor

Horrible food
Staff ok, taking this Covid thing very seriously, cleaning continuously. Rooms ok, big enough. The worst ever hotel food wise. I’m not fussy, I eat everything. They should immediately sack the chef. I can do better cooking, and i can’t do a boil egg. Guys, it’s horrible; same food in the morning, lunch and evening. I feel gutted for this review, staff don’t deserve it but horrible food. Please just bed&breakfast not all inclusive. Never, ever ever ever will be returning

Nice staff but hotel charges for everything
The hotel staff was very friendly, very helpfull. The location of the hotel was great, few minutes walk from the beach and city centre. Good access to local buses. But the food was horrible. We had breakfast included, but the food was terrible, we end up eating only fruits or going out for a proper breakfast. There was a swimingpool outside, but the water was so cold that no one was able to get in. There was a gym and an inside swimmingpool, but to use them you had to pay extra. And the enterteinment was really poor, not fun at all. So we stayed at the hotel only to sleep and keep our staff.

Good Location
Location was ideal. A short walk to the beach and only a ten minute walk to the main area with restaurants and the action. The room itself was clean and had everything we needed. We were disappointed that on top of already an expensive trip you needed to pay for the WIFI and to use the gym. The staff we found quite blunt and rude. Nothing major but after travelling Asia where staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable this was something we really noticed. Poor customer service. I would stay again but would certainly look for other options first.
