We stayed in this place for 8 nights. First we got the room upstairs but it was very small, with a view to the wall of the building next to, with one window that could't be open, very dark and it smelled on damp. We asked to change the room for the one downstairs and they did it without any extra charge. The rooms downstairs are bigger, with more natural light and they look newer. They cleaned our room every day and changed the bed sheets and towels. The staff is great, very friendly and polite. Breakfast was good, the same every day, but I liked it, although we ate at the hotel maybe 2 or 3 times, because we wanted to try different food outside. The pool wasn't clean, but anyway we were all day on the beach so actually we didn't need a pool at all, but it was nice sitting there in the evening, watching ocean waves. Also, you must take into account that their culture and standards are different from our "Western", so you can not expect the same service. We also had the opportunity to be in the 5* resort where hygiene also was not at a satisfactory level how we used to, the pool was also not cleaned regularly, and the night in a standard double room costed about 200eur. All in all, it was ok for a budget hotel, since we spent most of the time outside and we've used the room just for sleepover.
