Liked: Location for beach

Disliked: Staff were moody and very limited in information. I found it very hard to pull the receptionists away from their phones and their games on the computer. Had to wait 15 minutes at the reception desk before receptionist was bothered to leave her computer - again playing games on computer. Price was not worth treatment at reception. Dont waste your money if you want to be treated in any decent manner.
