8/10 Very good

Excellent location. Practically on the beach
The hotel is a modest hotel. Practically on the beach which is a big plus.breakfast is ok, nothing to brag about. Make sure you reserve a room with a/c, during the summer it's hot and the humidity is sky high The Wi-Fi is the worse, I had to go to the waves restaurant next door to connect .

En dårlig oplevelse
Hotellet levede ikke op til almindelige krav Vi skulle bede om håndlæder der var slidte Air comdition virkede ikke og strømmen blev taget om natten så fanen ikke virkede. Vandstrålerne var få og kolde Lyset virkede ikke på badeværelset Sengetøjet snusket og der var kun en usikker plaststol på terrassen Personalet var modvillige til at hjælpe Alt i alt så ucomfortabelt så anden nat valgte vi et andet hotel

Hôtel peu accueillant et délabré
Réservation effectuée il y a plusieurs mois en sea view. A l arrivée néanmoins, aucune chambre de ce type n était disponible et j ai finalement eu une vue sur le parking. Sanitaires sales, vétustes et délabrés. Draps tachés à l arrivée. Complexe d avoir de l eau chaude, et même de l eau tout court.... conditions d hygiène tellement déplorables que nous sommes restés une nuit au lieu de deux. Personnel peu avenant et peu aimable. Pas de wifi contrairement à ce qui est indiqué sur le site. Établissement vivement à déconseiller.

2/10 Poor

Kan nesten ikke bli verre
Jeg har reist mange steder og vært på mange forskjellige hoteller, og jeg kan med hånden på hjertet si at dette er et av de tre verste jeg noensinne har vært på. Vi ble møtt i resepsjonen av en vertinne som utstrålte misnøye over at vi kom, og at alt var et stort ork. Selve oppholds- og soverommet var greit, men det var ingen rengjøring og skifte av sengetøy. Badet var elendig, hadde ikke dusjforheng (så hele badet ble vått hver gang vi dusjet), og vi måtte selv etterspørre såpe til toalettet. Begge nettene slo aircondition seg av, og vi hadde store problem med å sove. Forklaringen første natt var at voucheren for strøm hadde gått ut. Dag to gikk bare strømmen, og vi var uten AC. Det positive var at rommet hadde wi-fi og vi så ingen dyr/insekter inne.
