Negative Reviews

Lots of Noise From Other Rooms

Some guests reported that, at times, there is a lot of noise coming from the nearby rooms. Footsteps and conversations can be heard clearly through the walls that could perhaps use some more soundproofing. Also reported was loud refrigerators and air conditioning units. .

The Beach is Not Very Nice

Guests reported that the beach is further away from the hotel than they were led to believe and it's not very nice. There are lots of rocks, seashells and seaweed, the sand is hard and large crowds tend to gather on it.

A Car is Needed to Get Around

Guests reported that the hotel is not as central as they were led to believe and in order to reach many of the services and attractions, a car or bicycle is needed. .
