Lighting is of poor quality need changing and pool had no chlorine so infections of fungus are slightly to happen especially to woman and kids but after all the hotel is fantastic.

Good hotel but no smart tv
Very comfortable room and a lovely hotel. I would stay again. Definitely no Smart tv in the room. The description says that there is no reception. However there is a 24 hour reception so you don’t need to ring in advance.

Nice hotel with a great view
Our stay was very comfortable. We had an issue when booking in as I booked and paid online and paid in a currency other than USD, but it was soon sorted out. The room was very comfortable and clean and had a great view from our balcony. Breakfast was very nice and well presented. Staff were friendly and service was good

No value for money. Booked a large room, which was mostly empty. No attention to detail (Examples: room layout, hard towels, etc.)
