It is early August and peak season. The pool has been closed for a day and a half due to "ph problem". The water looks green and it has had "medicine" put in it, presumably to kill the algae.
I am not sure I want to go in it.
The hotel itself was probably good in its day, but now tired. Aircon is free and works well. Breakfast buffet is a mixture of continental style and eggs, ok for about 5 quid a day I suppose.
It is very isolated and you will need a car. First shuttle bus to town during the week is at 4.30pm, last back is 11.30pm. Takes about 15 minutes, definitely not walkable. Nothing else around to walk to.
This is not the first review to mention a problem with the pool, you have been warned.
