    Nice hotel, great location, rooms need TLC

    Great location of hotel and clean and modern in most areas. Some areas of the rooms are a little dated and the sofa bed was very uncomfortable. Food was OK, but not brilliant. Pool was very cold.

    The suite I rented for my son and his newly wedded bride was spectacular. My suite however was a disappointment. There was no television in the bedroom.

    Spacious room. Pool area was nice. Great location, short walk to old town, new strip or beach. Staff at reception were exceptional. Fridge in room came in handy for drinks. Only downside was daily housekeeping was just to change the towels. Sheets weren’t changed for a whole week and room didn’t get a dust or sweep in a whole week, so flood got quite grubby.

    The apartment was very worn , the couch needed to be replaced very uncomfortable to sit on . The big brown mat on the floor I would get rid of . The cushions were very smelly . The windows and patio door was in need of cleaning , you could just about see out the window .

    Disappointing on so many levels

    Wifi in the room was virtually non existent. We were booked from Friday to Monday and despite being out of the room for most of the day on Saturday, our room had not been cleaned by 5:30 pm when we got back. Then we were told that the rooms are not cleaned on Sundays so our room did not get cleaned at all during our stay.
