While we were there.... we were looking forward to a positive and relaxing experience in the pool and hot tub... This did NOT happen because of the copious amounts of unruly LOUD AND DISRUPTIVE children there from opening to closing...

2/5 Poor

The room was clean and comfortable, the view of the harbour was great However the hot water for the shower was warm not adjustment to make it hotter. The shower head was too high and being a shorty I had to stretch to adjust it The "free breakfast" was free because I would not pay for it if there was a charge. The sausages were greasy, the potatoes had too much spice and were always cold, and the eggs tasted like rubber and very dry--and cold--wondering it they were real eggs or just powder Variety would be great too--the same food every day-- I ate there the first couple days and then I went elsewhere for the rest of my stay to eat something nutritious--no matter anyway--won't be back

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
We had no hot water in our room or wifi. There was also a chunk of plastic baked in my food when we are at the hotel restaurant. For the price we paid to stay at this hotel, we were very disappointed on the lack of working services. Thank you.
