This place has it all. Especially the weekends when the markets are thriving. Great food places and interesting things to do. Close to the water and there is even a 6 screen cinema to watch the latest movies. Easy to spend a few days here and have fun.

We booked here for our last night before flying home. Room was enormous. Very worried about the noise levels from the market area, but this quietened down considerably once the markets closed, enabling us to have a good nights sleep. Veranda was undergoing some maintenance, so, not the best place to sit.

Lovely place has restaurants underneath hotel and weekend markets. Beach a two minute walk shops and pub up the road. Only fault with this place is the ferrel kids running up and down and she he beds are not the best but otherwise love this place.

Being tempted by the brouchures of the resort we caught the ferry over to explore what seemed to be a very unique place. Could not have been more disappointed. Nothing was open and not a soul around! January school holidays l would have thought the place would be enjoying its peak trading time. I would really think twice about taking...

It's a little confusing but there is lots there! Pool, movie theatres with latest releases, bountiful eateries with excellent food. Market shops, only on weekends though. It's like an Italian forum. I have to mention the pizzas from the place underneath the hotel rooms, very very good. We had an upstairs room which was nice, there are double doors that...

The motel was good for the price. The building is a little old but it has been well maintained. It is in a great spot close to the beach and there are good restaurants and a cinema close by. It was very disappointing that the Wi-Fi was not working at all for the entire time we stayed here. I spoke...

The markets are very boring & the food was terrible. I ordered a kebab with the lot & it only had meat, tomato & tabouli on it, I took it back the guy argued that he put everything on it-not sure where it went but it wasn't on my kebab!!

Good standard accommodation with the advantage of having a range of restaurants plus a cinema complex close by. An amazing complex which also includes a coffee shop, all kinds of eating out experiences plus markets that run Thursday to Sunday inclusive. Interesting Italian decor throughout and the place really buzzes when the markets are on. Accommodation is upstairs and separate...
