I would say no matter what problem you are having they would help you out the best they can. We had a great stay there. Would hsve liked to have stayed longer.

4/10 Fair

Depressing and trashy package holiday resort
Trashiest hotel experience of my life! I have no idea how this was classified 4 stars, someone somewhere is having a laugh. There was dampness in stairwell. Way finding sign posting was crazy and illogical. The clientele were horrible rowdy British people on all inclusive deals knocking back alcohol and shouting at each other across the pool. The food was depressing. Ordered a chicken salad and it came covered in cocktail sauce like we were stuck in 1980! The scrambled eggs were so overcooked they could doyble up as a weapon and the juice was not fresh but full of sugar and from concentrate. Toiletries were cheap. Decor looks like a cheap office block. The hotel does not have an iron in the whole hotel? It's apparently 4 stars but I have no idea how it got this rating? The phone in my room did not work. The tv automatically turns on and advertises how great the hotel was, I wonder how much they paid people to say it was the best hotel in the world ?(the propaganda didn't work as I was staying there???). On arrival I turned on the bath and the water was brown. So happy to have checked out. Outdated plc3 and a miserable experience.
