Worth a stopover
Convenient location for a stopover. Overall, the resort needs updating & restaurant menu needs reviewing. Limited options, especially with dietary requirements. The room was spacious, comfy & well equipped but again, needs updating, particularly the bathroom. Parking was an issue. Not enough undercover close to the rooms & had to park & walk a distance in the rain. Reception still hasn’t removed the holding fee 4 days after checking out & correctly charged for dinner & issue a receipt. One of those annoying details when travelling for work.

Average stay at Best nice
Really disappointed in the stay. This is not a hotel resort. These are self serviced apartments with individual owners. False advertising. I had to keep asking for cleaning detergent, soap refills etc. I even had to go to reception to get them. Breakfast was average. The pool was freezing and the pool bar was also a little kiosk. Our room was very dated and did not match the pictures that I thought I was paying for. It was when I asked about my booked room I was told that each apt owner maintained their unit. People live here. The service was definitely not hotel standard. The Wi-Fi may as well not be existing. My wife had to work at times and she had to go to reception area just to get a signal. If I knew what I was walking into I wouldn’t have had a complaint. But I thought I was booking a hotel resort which is vastly different. Was a shame as we stayed for 9 nights and this was our annual holiday. Def wouldn’t be back
