2/10 Poor

Awful hotel rude staff
Hotel looks like a series of prison blocks with towels over balcony’s all around.

4/10 Fair

Terrible experience
When we came to our room, it was 40 degrees celsius in there. We immediately turn on air conditioning, but it did not help much as it was very out-of-date. So we were forced to go to lobby bar and stay there till 11 p.m. because the heat in out room was unbearable. We had to sleep with AC turned on, otherwise we would not be able to get some rest. The parking on site is free and in the shade, but you hardly get a spot, because they sell daily parking tickets for visitors, who come to the beach for one day. So you have to be lucky or have to come very late, when daily visitors already left. We stayed only one night, because we needed some rest before we continiued our drive back home, but we would definatelly not stay in this hotel if we were on vacation. At least staff was trying to be nice, but did not make much effort to help with the unbearable heat in our room.
