Restaurants serve low quality food (=crap) /shakes...

The biggest drawback being: - Reservation of sunbeds, if you wake up after 9 in the morning or are a civilised person you will not find a available sunbed...

The balcony room was ok, although it could do with some freshening up and the toilet almost over-flowed a couple of times. House keeping seemed...
