This also meant that when we ventured out, we... More

Stayed 5 nights on a mixture of paid stay and points. The hotel is situated in a residential area about 10 mins from the lovely beach. The rooms are tired but fit for purpose, the only thing I missed was a balcony to sit out on, don't know if they have any rooms with them, didn't see any.. There is... More
