Don't expect abject luxury, but if you're wise you won't have paid for it, it's absolutely adequate for the purposes for which it is intended.

Luis & Isabel are lovely hosts providing...

Pool was lovely, little bit on the cold side but once you were in it was grand. Downside here was there wasn't enough sun loungers. People were coming out putting there towels down...

Basic but fine for the price. Got a sofa bed which for 12 nights wasn't the best but room fairly well equipped. Lack of plug sockets and a bit dated but some rooms were more modern.
