This is a little gem located in a place where you just wouldn’t expect to discover such hospitality and quality, if I receive a response from Expedia regarding the booking issue which was nothing to do with the Sun I will certainly return.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Very disappointing

The room had a very bad sewerage smell. There was loud music until the very early hours. No breakfast was provided as stated that there would be and in-fact there were no staff or anyone around to check out at 10:00 am, so we had to just leave the key outside the room as there wasn’t anything else we could do. Overall it was a very poor experience.

Room 6 was gorgeous with massive room / bath in the corner / huge bathroom and balcony with hot tub. I will definitely stay again here but only thing I would say is it needs more pillows as the ones there were flat and hard - also a little welcome pack with WiFi code - oh and if you want a bath it will take about 30 mins to run it !! But it was still amazing x staff all lovely too x
