The rooms are basic nothing extraordinary that makes feel like you're living in a 5 star. Buffet spreads were also a bit disappointing- 5 star wise- otherwise ok, but that makes your options of what...

The location of this hotel is good. Though it is not a beach facing property, It's just a five min walk from beach. The building is very old and not so well maintained. The garden, swimming pool area is small. Personally I don't think it's a great value for money. I would rather spend more and choose luxury beach resort.....
