Comfortable but conventional mid range accommodation which lacks character and has a dated feel to the décor. The spacious grounds offer a good array of facilities and a sizeable beach which compensates for the isolated location with nothing but desert and mountains for miles. Suits those not intending to leave their sunbed apart from maybe the odd day trip.
An attractive complex of local style 2-storey buildings with small domes and wood railed balconies, and a 2 storey main building.
Property type: Hotel
