    Ideally located for the main strip and the beach. Was nice and peaceful around the pool which was a haven if you want to get away from the noise of the beach or the strip. Apartment and hotel very clean and staff seem to be non stop cleaning. Looking to book again soon.

    To have been able to go to bed at night and not be disturbed by the excessive noise and loutish behaviour of a group of over 60 teenagers who were there without their parents and whom the management did nothing to control and allowed to run amok , banging doors, ringing door bells, shouting all into the wee small hours....

    Sauna was locked and when we requested to have it turned on and opened they said they couldn't because it was after 1600 and it would cost 8€ per person. There is also no heat or AC. One bathroom lighting didn't work. There was black mold on the other bathroom. There were bugs in the bedrooms and in the dressers.

    I was asked for a €150 Deposit on the room which wasn't stated in advance when booked. Very poor cleaning service, needed to ask twice to get my room cleaned and the only thing they done was the beds. Small swimming pool. No air conditioner.

    The only good thing about this place is the location, 15 min on foot from the beach and 5 min from the bars.

    The rooms are exceptionally basic and dated. We rented air con at an extra cost as the rooms didn't have any. It was however more like a fan and the door had to be open to let the hot air out, allowing the hot air back in! Our room was split level so the bedroom didn't have the air con, only downstairs. The room didn't have wine glasses, which is a little odd. And the room was to accommodate three people but only had two outdoor chairs?! There were not many plug sockets either. A must with everyone's electrical goods these days!

    The rooms were clean as was the pool area. It was in a good location in the new town. The shower was very good and powerful and didn't run out of hot water.

    The furniture in the accomadation was very 1980s very uncomfortable chairs and settee the apartment we stayed in was for 4 sharing with one bed room and a settee that doubled as two single beds ok for small children not adults ,would have been better as a more modern bed settee style,also the pool was in need of some maintenance asap lots of small blue tiles missing and coming off the pool sides and floor overall the whole place needs a make over to bring it into the 21st century it would then be an even better holiday experience, I was there 2 nights that was enough,I would not book to go back unless some of these issues have been addressed

    Location : only a short walk beach and THE STIP where all the lively action was,though the main road outside the complex was used like a race track by locals just take care crossing it

    I was never in such a dirty hotel! you cannot be barefoot even in bathroom :( all installations are very old and not comfortable staff unfriendly, not smiley look at you like you are criminal. and we understood why - most of people choosing this hotel are people who party till 6 am, then come back all drunk and make a mess in pool etc. Some plastic beer jars were all day long from the light till next evening and no one takes them out. Pool shape - who the .. was designer of this? looks funny, cheap and dissapointing at same time. also it is too small for the quantity of rooms you have in this Hostel.. So, finally if you call it Dirty Hostel with pool - then it could work. place to avoid.

    We liked that we could sleep totally max 9 hours in 3 nights....
