8/10 Very good

What I liked about this hotel is the location . Its a great place to unwind with views onto the sea . But if you are looking to go shopping or other activities its a 30 mins drive . What I did not like is that this hotel needs a revamp. Everything looks old . The bathrooms are not clean as expected . The maintenance department has to improve. I had a light flickering . Telephone not working . Its a popular wedding venue so expect crowds . Pool has no privacy with laborers lounging around . I feel this hotel shoukd be rated 4 star
