Added advantage was the halaal food available. Room was awesome with sea and pool view. Very clean n got new towels everyday. Lots of exciting things to...

I think the other reviews say it all - this is a dirty, badly managed and broken down hotel that should either be totally revamped or closed down. The only positive is the views and the proximity to the beach - which by the way is down a fairly badly maintained 150+ steps. The restaurant makes Faulty Towers look like...

My husband and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon and found it very pleasant. It was definitely value for money and perfectly situated to what we had planned each day. Clean and spacious rooms and friendly staff.

Nothing compared to all their different ads on the internet. False Advertising of note!!! Needs a revamp, old TV without a remote and bad reception. For those who enjoy an alcoholic beverage, you need to ask if they have any, as it's not advertised. Room service is pathetic. Daily servicing of the rooms is very bad - had to ask...

This place is so beautifully located but very old and falling apart. Tatty, worn and dirty. We stand for four nights, priced well but now we know why? Beds were fine but hallways dirty, bathrooms old, breakfast a shocker... No guys you can do better

An absolute shocker... The place is falling apart, it's filthy, understaffed, poorly managed and not too mention the pathetic quality of the food!!! Do not waste your money to stay in this dump and don't be fooled by the photographs on their website; it's FAR from the truth!

This hotel is highly understaffed. 1. The People at the desk is not very professional and need a senior to assist them.(who is not always around) I could not get one. 2.The cleaning staff is used as kitchen staff. The Maintenance staff is used as Kitchen and any thing else. 3. With over 415 rooms you only have 6 permanent...

I will not recommend this dump to anyone. It's nothing what's promised. Air-conditioning does not work. Taps are ceased. Carpets are smelly. Furniture all falling apart. Rooms does not get serviced on time. No towels on times. Towels and linens are taken away to be laundered and sent back to the rooms. In the meantime, no towels and linen in...

Looks nothing like the photos, room service can't even find your room after you give your room number. Do not come here if you want peace and quiet. Service is horrible. No place to buy food or cooldrink on-site. Beds are unbelievably bad, rock hard when you lie down, full of springs and the walk to the beach is not...
