Hotel is out of the way with nothing around it but other hotels and two good restaurants nearby. Hotel is damp and mouldy. Terrible smell in room. Whole complex is in poor state of repair. Pool water is filthy could not see bottom with cloudy water. No hot water on two occasions Reception staff unaccommodating.

Dear Sophie, we appreciate your comments and we will repair all the issues that you write. About the location we're 5 minutes walking distance from the beach, you can also find a small supermarket, and about the reception staff I as a Front Office Manager will train them to improve the service. Sincerely
