Horrible food (stale, old, fast-food-like), dirty rooms, unfriendly personnel, dirty and crowded pool; the location is terrible - too far from the beach; the hotel was full of unsupervised Russian and Bulgarian 10/12-year olds who were shouting all the time, crowding, making unbelievable noise and littering. The hotel has not been properly cleaned or refurbished for decades.
staff unpolite (mainly cleaning services)
Cleaning personnel is unpolite. Then on website check-in is 14:00 but I had to wait mar than 1h and half to check-in.
The silence at the hotel... perfect for relaxing. The all inclusive package (bar included)
no air conditioned, bad elevator, that's all ;)
This hotel is completely outdated and need a big face lift. The breakfast menu wasn't geared towards Irish or English people. Only went once during our stay.
We had booked in for 6 nights but only stayed for 3 because there was no air conditioning which in this day and age is totally unaccepable in such a warn county and it was very noisy early in the mornings with young children crying. We didn't get one nights sleep due to the heat and the crying children. There wasnt even a fan available from receiption to hire.
price/quality - the best.Brekfest-super.Our room was wiew to park and sun wasn't shine.Another rooms (with sun) need A/C.
staff at reception is not very competetion.
The prices were very good but unfortunately the low prices were correlated with low quality of the services. We liked the availability of juices and icecream and of the swimming pool.
It was noisy and very hot although on the hotel website among other amenities the air condioned was present, but in reality it is absent. It was also the case of refrigerator and the hair dryer that existed not. Also, the elevator warked only until 15-16 o'clock, after that we should ascend by stairs with a 3 years old child to the fourth floor. As I know at least air conditioned should be compulsory for a three stars hotel. The cleaning was not acceptable, the balcony floor was mildewy.
The quality / price report was very good. Our expectations were not very high yet they had okay services.
It was very noisy. There were children in the camp and they were making to much noise early in the morning.
Breakfast served at the restaurant across the street was ok, even better than average 3 star.
Too many years are passed since last renovation, the whole hotel looked old and tired. The hotel room on the ground floor had a really bad smell, there is no air conditioner or the fridge. We arrived 15min before check in time and the reception lady asked us to wait exactly 15min for no reason.
good price - for budget turists
breakfast could be improved; smell of damp in the rooms
I like especialy the vegetarian food, very good range and diversified, at snack on swiming pool you can get vegetarian pizza also.Good value for the money.
I didn' t like at this hotel the old furniture and to much pork MEAT...no beef meat and we stay 7 nights
