The room was clean and had everything you need, also a lot of space compared to other hotels in the same price-class. There is a bar downstairs so it is a bit loud, but that didn't bother...

The staff were lovely, and the hotel was great. I have no complaints other than the fact we didn't stay long enough to get good at pool... wow - we were rubbish (especially Sam Ashton - now that guy, doesn't have a clue). The drinks were cheap and the area was such good fun - please, if you're looking for...

We stayed here for 3 nights. When we arrived we ended up been upgraded from our originally booked 4 person room to two 2 person rooms. We were on the 5th floor and had a rooftop terrace. The rooms were clean and had air-conditioning and a fan. The owners were friendly and helpful. At night it obviously is quiet loud...

Location is excellent. Close to the beach, shopping, restaurants and bars. Our AC room for 4 people had flat screen TV & fridge & private bathroom. Room price was cheap. The rooms were big and clean. First floor have Irish Pub with pool tables & reception area. Free wifi but it only worked downstairs. Staff was really nice and helpful....
