Excellent Resort and location
Excellent Resort in a great location, on the beach. Own area on beach which was kept very clean and had free sunloungers and umbrellas available for Hotel Guests.

Pool area was lovely, lots sunloungers and fresh towels with outside showers that were both hot and cold. Seperate changing and shower room near pool for use on departure day after checkout.

Hotel is run down
The hotel is very run down. Staff was nice but this hotel is a 2 star on every level. Pool was not heated so nobody would swim. The halls have no ac so boiling. Sunny beach is a fun place but it is a dump. The food is gross except for the fish restaurant that is not part of the deal. That place is great. Buffett is sub par. Anyone who says the food is good is nuts.
