Rooms were clean, beds were huge and clean, didn’t like the toiletries in the bathroom. Pump style not individual pieces. Not everyone takes a body scrub on holiday with them for shower gel. Felt that was a little like a public lavatory. Reception was unattended on arrival & when I called using the phone outside no one answered, was told it doesn’t work.
