Had booked this place online for 3 days and two nights. The location was very nice, right on the beach, so apart from having their own pool there was an option to swim or walk along the beach. Housekeeping staff were prompt and rooms were very clean except that the drains had a foul smell. Having taken the part board...

The hotel is is in a secluded spot and located by the beach. The depth of the sea was about 4 to 5 feet for about 40 feet or more so that it was like a big swimming pool. The hotel had a heated pool too but it was of one depth, ideal for kids. The food was served "Buffet...

Stayed for 3 nights. Pre-booked it on the Cinnamon site before we arrived and wished we hadn't. This is an old hotel and it's way overdue for a makeover. The rooms are very outdated and need a revamp. However the worst thing about the room was the foul stench that comes up from the bathroom/shower drain. It's disgusting. and seems...

Levels of service provided was terrible. Choice of food provided for the price is below average. Terrible service provide for locals at the restaurant. 3 of us went for lunch and the table was set up only for two. Had to ask the staff for cutlery and serviettes. Plates were not cleared from the lunch table. Had to ask them...

I loved the hotel's location right by the beach, and the food (both breakfast and dinner) was excellent. We stayed in one of the beach houses, which could have been a little better maintained. The main issue I had was that we ordered room service, and I was not told that the food I requested was not available; only found...

I can speak for all and tell that the scenery, the pool and beach areas, the rooms were beautiful. We were disappointed that the snooker table was faulty, but the beach and pool were enough to keep the bunch occupied. There could have been a few more restaurant staff present. And abit more Can't wait to go back again alone...

This property is an ideal place for a beach holiday. Staff are all friendly. My package is full board with buffet served for all meals. There was a great variety of food for selection. The only downside is the restaurant was always short of staff so we could not get attentive service.

In the crab restaurant, we were given a menu card with half prices (we didn't know until they came up with the bill), so we ended up ordering lots of dishes as we thought they are a good value for the money. When the bill arrived we noticed that all the prices have doubled, and when we inquired the staff...
