If you are looking for an affordable option, then this is definitely a resort to consider. The rooms are cleaned to a high standard, the food is good and the staffs are extremely friendly. We would recommend this hotel to families in search of a reasonably priced beach holiday as there is direct access to the beach and a swimming pool to cool down in.
