AWFUL!! DO NOT eat in the restaurant. The owners/managers are SO rude, I've never encountered anything like it in my life. They wouldn't let my kids play pool, they wanted "official ID, they need to be 16" The food was thrown at us. They were fawning over other people... Who didn't have kids with them, but frankly.. We spent more...

It is about 30 minute walk into marina not close to any amenities. You get what you pay for !The only positive was it was very clean .We...

We stayed here for 4 nights and I can't complain about it at all! Quick enough transfer, and effortless check in. The room is very good for the money and we had wifi in our room which was great to FaceTime the kids. It was clean enough throughout the whole site and all staff were very friendly. The pool area...

Don't expect abject luxury, but if you're wise you won't have paid for it, it's absolutely adequate for the purposes for which it is intended. We had a studio which consists of a a bathroom (with bath and shower), a bedroom/living area and a separate kitchen. It had a fridge with ice box, kettle toaster microwave, oven and hob, the...
