We stayed at this hotel from 1 July 2013 to 15 July 2013 and had a great time. This was mainly because of the people we met. The hotel is clean and the grounds are kept very tidy. There are plenty of sunbeds available at all times. The hotel was being refurbished (upgrading the soundproofing apparently) at the time and...
