Hotel was good. I really can't knock it. Yes it's location wasn't the greatest however your five minutes away from a beach along the dirt track at the side of the hotel. It's not for the faint hearted who do not like walking. But it suited me and my partner fine. Apartments are basic but cleaner came 4/7 days we...

Overall a really nice holiday. Staff were friendly, weather was great, we had some lovely excursions and the food at the apartment was ok. Hope you like walking though because there were lots of steps, but for the money no complaints :)

“The rooms in the main block are the oldest - and in need of some refurbishment - but nearest the restaurant. There are newer rooms but with more hill-walking involved!”
