Positive Reviews

Respectful, helpful and friendly staff members

Members of staff at the hotel appear to take their duties seriously and are always available when you need them. Their speediness and willingness in dealing with requests and complaints gives guests' confidence in their ability to gratify their needs.

Well furnished and very well maintained apartments

The apartments are very spacious and comfortable. The tasteful and modern decor adds to the hotel's appeal. The rooms are clean and well designed with attention to detail. The beds are large and the mattresses are comfortable. The bathrooms are spotlessly clean, the showers are powerful and the bathtubs are roomy.

Perfect setting with breathtaking views

Some rooms have a picturesque view of the sea. The sunsets are spectacular. The surroundings are splendid and you get the added benefit of having the ocean view right outside your window. The beach is well situated a few minutes' drive from the hotel.

Negative Reviews

Lack of air-conditioning system

Some guests complained about the absence of air conditioning system in their rooms. They felt disappointed because they had to cope up with the warm temperatures at night. They felt that this should be a basic feature in the hotel.

The interior and exterior appear to be rundown

A number of guests found the hotel to be in need of refurbishment. The furnishings appeared to be old and the upholstery threadbare. The corridor carpets are also worn out especially in areas with a constant stream of traffic during peak seasons.

Musty smell in the rooms, corridors and bathrooms

A few guests noted a damp and oppressive smell in some areas of the hotel such as the bathrooms and the corridors. The odour did not seem to go away despite the simple act of opening a window.
