Room was fine, bed was comfortable. Road noise was very loud and windows leak when the wind is blowing creating a whistle and wind tunnel sound which gets louder as the wind increases.

Good 6,0
It is an over priced hotel.
That stay was ok. I hirt myself and they did not have a stocked first aid kit. Also the "free" breakfast that was advertised was not free but part of the resort fee. The food was cold and tasteless. Yesterday my elect went out and it took a couple of hours to fix. Also my room was hot cleaned jor was I given fresh towels.

Quiet hotels
Hotel position just right for beach and restaurants . Decor showing signs of wear in places. Reception staff and cleaning staff very helpful . unfortunately presentation of breakfast vouchers in next door establishment makes you feel like a second class citizen, not what we expected. The adjacent hotel pool is no problem but has no changing rooms except for the one toilet which is not what you expect.
