3/5

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

We liked the outdoor area, bar and pool. Excellent for families. The whole hotel needs a re-vamp. Outdated entrance with broken tiles, old carpet and dated walls. The rooms are very outdated with a rusty shub, old furniture and old shelving. NO air conditioning which is very disappointing so the room was very hot.

    The pool area was amazing, would have been cool if the smaller pools were slightly heated but still great
