A total disgrace
Reviewed 3 months ago

Warning to anyone thinking of booking a studio in this complex. This place is a total disgrace, abandoned, derelict and dirty...The photos are misleading and do not reflect the reality. No reception area, carpets mouldy, shower dirty, pool in another hotel. This was a family holiday of a lifetime. THIS PLACE SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN..

Belson Review of Greatness

It was a good time, the skyloft allowed me and my girlfriend to have our own privacy. The only problem was the breakfast, the waffle maker did not work and had residue from other guests using it. But other than that it was fine.

The place is derelict and deserted. Mouldy and damp and infested with cockroaches and insects. The pool and facilities are closed. No concierge. It's abandoned. Apartments are deserted some leaking water through the roof. The lift is stinking and filthy. It is scary unsafe and no one would know we were here if there was a fire. We paid over £1000 for this

Great location, but not worth the price.

The hotel itself was in a great location, close to a lot of stuff but the room was not worth the price we paid. We were greeted by a dead roach when we got to the room. The next morning, there was another roach crawling through the living area. There was also bad patches throughout the room, scratches in the sink and the bed wasn't comfortable.

The place is very nice & Clean the service wasn't too bad. I did get charged 136$ for a late checkout fee. They didn't call or come knock on the door. They get you when you checking out. The AC was ok
