Good facilities for entertainment.

Inefficient staff and expensive food.
The staff lacks efficiency, and service, especially around the pool, is slow. The portion of the food serving is small for the price charged. Even an extra portion of bread is charged.
No free Wi-Fi in rooms.
The hot water tap and shower do not function properly in the bathroom. Wi-Fi is not freely available in the rooms and the charge is high. Though it is free in common areas, it is rather inconvenient to walk all the way each time a guest needs to use the facility.
Pool not heated.
The outdoor pool is not heated and gets too cold to swim. The loungers around are in bad shape as they are left out in the nights and even in the rain.
