    We only booked it for two days and were glad to leave.

    Dusty and noisy bull dozers next to the swimming pool all day that we had not been warned about.Also we overlooked a half complete derelict building . Boiling hot room at night-no fans or air conditioning and disco music heard until early hours of morning. Had to wait over 2 hours to get into a room that was suppose to be ready at 2 and still wasn't ready at 3.30pm. Finally got in past 5.30pm. Damp sheets;no fan no aircom and hugelyl over priced. For same price could stay at a great 4 star hotel in London. Poor value for money; would not stay again.

    Great pool, very clean, rooms cleaned daily, great location, very reasonably priced.

    Building work next door was annoying whilst at the pool. I feel the kitchen could be better equiped, there was no peeler, grater or colinder/sieve.
