4/10 Fair

The most expensive filthy room I’ve ever had! There was a sign saying to wash and put away your dishes… I’m wondering if that’s how they work on the whole room. Wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t clean every guest. Pool was nice.

Good value for money
Comfortable bungalows with a tropical island feel, just missing the beach, a little dated but good value for money... Reception staff very friendly, cleaning staff invading the room before checkout time was a little intrusive and rude though, don't disturb people before 10am
