Negative Reviews

The Area Around the Hotel is Noisy

Guests reported that there is quite a bit of noise from various sources around the hotel including loud fans and air conditioning units, cars passing in the street below and lots of dogs barking nearby.

Guest Rooms are Shabby and Damp

Although guests are under the impression they are getting a room with a sea view, the sea is so far away, you can barely see it. Also reported was a lot of dampness in the room, some mould in the bathrooms, hard and uncomfortable beds, shabby and old decor and patio doors that don't close properly.

Some Staff Members are Abrupt and Defensive

When complaints are made, the staff becomes abrupt and defensive and they try to pass the blame. Guests reported that some staff members are hard to approach because they are always making personal calls on their cell phones and become irritated when they are disrupted. Also reported was cleaning staff who show up to clean rooms late in the day and do a rushed job that sees them forgetting to clean and replace some items.
