4/10 Fair

A very disappointing stay, not to be recommended. Reception and dining closed for renovations … no mention of this was made. Floor dirty on arrival. No staff on site or response to text message. Only one available plug working. Water for basin came out muddy and eventually stopped working.

4/10 Fair

The website is completely misleading. Reception and restaurant not open. The complex is rundown and deserted feeling. We had to phone to find out how to get our key. The room was clean but very dated. The curtains wouldn't close properly. Running water not drinkable but they did provide bottled water. There were only 2 other guests that we saw. Tennis court dilapidated and unusable. Not advisable to stay here currently.

6/10 Good

Staff were helpful & apologetic, room was clean & view lovely. There was not information on website regarding the bar & restaurant being closed. We ordered a twin double & received a twin single.

6/10 Good

Nobody appeared to be onsite. Water was not drinkable according to a sign in the room. A dining chair had no padding leaving you sitting on an iron bar. Wifi was there but no internet access. Restaurant was closed. However, picture windows gave great view over water.

Quirky but pleasant stay.
We were disappointed that the bar and restaurant were not open, but I have since realised that I was sent an email informing me of this, but somehow missed it. Our room was fairly comfortable, large with a beautiful view. The water was not portable but bottled water is supplied. The reception was via phone but Claire was very kind and helpful.
