    Desperate need of a makeover

    Hotel was close to the beach and the breakfast, although very small, was fine. Unfortunately that is the only good things about this place. The hotel is very run down and in desperate need of a makeover. Our room was dirty, full of cobwebs, and there was a grubby carpet in the bathroom and a shower that barely worked. In the six nights we stayed we never had the bedding changed and no fresh towels. Fawlty Towers definitely springs to mind. I would not recommend staying here .

    Dehumanisation and total ripoff by altavia hotel

    To say these is an horrible place to stay is an understatement.To start the people here are horrible and looked down on all their guests like pest.The breakfast is horrible.the rooms are like staying i. A chicken shed as you can hear all your footsteps like you are falling through the floorings.the rooms are without bath soaps.The rooms are very dirty and filthy.The aeration is poor as the building is very old and not much work has being done to improve it.God help you if you ask the workers and especially the owner who sleeps with his workers for help as they are very proud and rude.Even though on several occasions we made it clear we have got little kids and a pregnant lady among us they still kept on making uncooked egg .very awkward toast,tiny milk,tea and coffee in a rusted pot.The kids developed stomach ache throughout our stay.Dont go to these hotel if you value life
