Really enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable and close to everything. My son enjoyed the Wi-Fi. it was just great. Rooms were comfortable. 2 bathrooms were a plus. lounge suit was not the greatest, but that is purely because we are use to our own comfort.

Thank you for reviewing our establishment. The beds are new and are firm. We had complaints that the previous beds were too soft.

This accommodation was better than I expected although the bathrooms, fixtures and furnishings were a bit outdated. However, my overall stay was not slighted in least as the rooms and beddings were clean. Breathtaking sea views and close proximity to all amenities.

Thank you for reviewing our establishment. Each unit is individually owned, and some of the owners have been able to invest and upgrade their units, others have not.
