Pool and hot tub are just plain grim! Kitchenettes are vile, main kitchen is good but small, showers and toilets are ok. Nightlife good, decent bar. Much better accommodation for cheaper just a few doors up. Wifi poor. Outdoor seating area from kitchen filled with broken benches! Staff are incredible though and do the best they can despite being spread so thin!! Nightly bbq worth the money if you don't mind a long queue and potentially standing to eat!

No soap or hand towels in the toilets in the dorms. Spa tub dirty. Luggage storage area filthy. Overall not clean. BBQ was not good and skimpy.

Ensuite shower room was a nice luxury, I also had the good fortune of having a whole 8 bed dorm to myself for 2 of the 5 nights I stayed here! I didn't use the hot tub or pool (they were very small and looked quite grubby) but this place is just across the road from the beach so what more could you want? The bar was friendly and quite busy most nights, plus they do a barbecue most nights as well, which is good value.
