    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The fact that there were no amenities like swimming pool, continetal breakfast, misleading on the beach, was bad enough. But then the resort itself was shabby looking with worn blankets that had holes in them. And the price was to high for all that was missing

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    Rooms were nice, rest of the hotel was average. A microwave would have been helpful.
