6/10 Good

Fruendly, convenient and helpful staff.
This hotel is located close to the beach and a shopping centre. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. Any issues are dealt with promptly and effectively. The hotel needs updating in certain areas and room curtains need to be replaced to give a better impression. The room has a T.V. and great AC and a kettle to make hot drinks. The hotel pool is wonderful and there is a basically equipped gymnasium which would benefit from more modern equipment. Overall I had I very good stay and the hotel was a great experience made by the staff themselves.
