    The place is old, very old and feels very cheap. Bath tube had poorly disguised hols. Furniture was old and worn out. Mattress was a terrible springs old thing, very uncomfortable. Breakfast was industrial frozen stuff style, we simply couldn't eat anything. Location is not the best between industrial buildings and 20m away from the beach.

    Reception was very helpul at securing a usb charger but it would be good if it were available in the room.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful with information and guidence of the area, things to do and places to eat. The breakfast was excellent and compehensive. Plenty of restaurant choice and a lovely sandy beach. The room was a good size, clean and comfortable. Would love to go back and enjoy the hotel pool facilities.

    Rooms are a bit plain, bathroom facilities were quite clean and on a higher level than the rooms themselves.

    Mosquitos in the room which means you might get quite a few bites while youre sleeping. Room could be described as sufficient.

    The breakfast was disappointing. They have many options but the quality of the products was bad: fruits, bread, eggs, bacon, etc. And the coffee is absolutely horrible.

    The hotel, even if it's in an ugly area, has the charm and quietude of an oasis. It's comfortable and the rooms are large.

    When the air conditioning was on there was a disgusting smell. There are mosquitos if open balcon door.

    Perfect place to stay for skydivers. Only 5 min walk to the dropzone. Friendly staff. The owner is russian-speaking. The breakfast is good, ready at 8am or even earlier, so you'll be on time for the 1st load at the dropzone. This hotel is not that excellent for normal people who are not fans of skydiving activity though. It's far from the beach.

    We had a nice room with terrace, well furnished.
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple

    On our return to our room after having dinner we found it filled with thick acrid smoke and a heavy smell of burning. There were no lights (we had left them on for our dog whilst we went for dinner). Having rescued our small dog we fetched the chap on reception who came with a torch and discovered that the ceiling fan in the bathroom had caught fire and melted down onto a towel which had also caught fire. The lights fuse had blown hence no lights. He quickly found another room for us and helped move our belongings which were covered in a smoky film. The following morning we were presented with an invoice for the full room and dinner charge. We had to argue to get at least recompense for the cleaning of our clothes etc., which was reluctantly given by deducting the cost of our dinner. Not nice! They do not have smoke alarms in the rooms.

    We had a nice room with terrace, well furnished. The chap on reception was very helpful and the food in the restaurant was very good.

    rooms very very clean, but a bit dated, beds a bit soft

    Historic property, we loved the proximity to the landing strip/aerodromo ( you can see your plane...) By chance we decided to eat here for dinner...It was terrific!!!! Dont hesitate to take half board. Lovely menu prepared by the owner Vincent and served by Pedro. The dining room is in a beautiful arched "cavern"...class, charm what else could you ask for! Very nice breakfast. Wifi works everywhere, even at the pool. Pool area full of trees, very pretty and protected from road and surroundings. Developing area, next to windtunnel for skydivers and waveclub..skydiving all day long...developing area....fun. 100m from aerodrome...dont hesitate to stay here.

    It wasn't very peaceful by the outdoor pool, as it was very close to an aerodrome, and with many constantly squawking parrots in the trees.

    It wasn't too busy with people. The outdoor pool was uncrowded and very nice.
