    5/5 Excellent

      simple but good inexpensive accommodation

      very simple accommodation but clean and with private bathroom and balcony with some seaview nice restaurant, very friendly staff, good pool by the sea but stony beach

      Stayed 1 night in Aug. 2018

      Misleading Terrible location. Outdated.

      Photos online of this resort are misleading. Paid in full online prior to arriving. Checked out after 1 night pepared to lose our money - thats how disapppinting it was. A good 30 minutes drive to town. Isolated and nothing or any facilities nearby at all. Extremely secluded. On beach but definitely not a swimming beach. Pool average. Rooms need major update. No running hot water. No tv etc. Lucky to fit one person in bathroom at a time. No basin/mirror in bathroom- small basin in room next to kettle. Restaurant misleading same set menu - just really snack food (pizza, spring rolls, fries etc). Definitely not worth the price... much better and more options in town.

      Stayed 7 nights in May 2018

      4/5 Good

      Nice hotel, nice view of beach

      Pleasant stay, helpful staff, sercurity was a worry but not concerning, awesome pool area and bar, hard to find, signage and lighting need improving, overal comfortable stay. Rooms still need a facelift as it feels more like a retreat centre as appose to a resort. Peeling paint in some places and windows needs upgrading. Will make an awesome religious retreat centre for large groups, but still needs improvement to become a resort

      Pros: Exceeded expectation

      Cons: Rooms need a major face lift, still feels like a religious retreat centre

      Stayed 4 nights in May 2018

      Not good enough

      The lady at receptionist was not expecting us. She didn't have our name on the computer and said the actual receptionist would be there tomorrow meaning she was pretty much telling us to stay elsewhere for the night until they could find proof that we had actually paid for our hotel stay. Luckily I had an confirmation email from when I paid online. Aircon was not working in our first room so we went Into another. The sheets we had were a bit dirty it had black spots on it. Our room wasn't cleaned only once during our stay. Breakfast is average. Only nice feature is the pool. We paid for 5 nights there but didnt sleep there for the last two nights because we just didn't feel it. Only some of the staff were nice. Overall we won't be coming back to this hotel. But we wish nothing but blessings to everyone who helped us in a way.

      Stayed 5 nights in Apr. 2018
