Lonely Planet review
If you want to launch yourself into the heart of the action, this is your answer. While the rooms in the older blocks are seriously frayed around the edges, the new wing showcases modern interiors and affords sea views. Amenities include two restaurants, a bar and a souvenir shop. Sadly, the pool lacks maintenance.
