We loved the location. Most disappointing part of our stay was definitely the wifi, wifi signal was not very strong at all and would quite often drop out (for us wifi is almost the most important thing) and the sign that said that if wifi isnt strong come down to the reception area isnt really practical. Toilet didnt flush very well and you had to hold the button down. Tv had limited reception or fuzzy channels. Shower was meh too. Steps up to the unit werent very easy and older people would struggle, also if they were wet would be dangerpus.
