Positive Reviews

Good location near the sea

Travellers are often pleased with the location of this hotel, close as it is to a beautiful beach. From here, the sea breeze blows over the lush green lawns, making these gardens a lovely place to relax on a hot afternoon. Guests enjoy cooling off in the hotel’s pool, which is described as spotlessly clean by bathers.

Negative Reviews

Surly owner spoils some stays

Travellers have experienced difficulties with both management and staff at this hotel. The hotel manager in particular is noted for his general lack of hospitality, and has ruined a number of stays by reselling pre-booked rooms to a higher bidder. Incidences of price-gouging at check-out have shocked travellers, whilst difficulty finding a member of staff when needed is another issue. Indifferent personnel are accused of mimicking their bosses’ bad behaviour.

More like a hostel than a hotel

Reviews suggest that photos used online to sell this property are more than a little misleading. The building itself is old and in need of some serious repairs. Bats swoop overhead and stray dogs roam the corridors freely. Shabby standards continue throughout the guest rooms, where malfunctioning AC units and terrible Wi-Fi sully the experience. Dirty linens and towels are an oft-griped about issue, while the dearth of in-room facilities shocks guests, who feel the price of the room demands more.

A most unmemorable menu

Guests who try out the food here do not tend to give the chef glowing reviews. Travellers complain that the food is bland and tasteless and, to make matters worse, very overpriced. Choices at the complimentary breakfast are very limited and what is on offer is of poor quality. Service to rooms is exceptionally slow and long wait times in the restaurant are another issue reported.
