Very nice place, not right at beachfront but that also means that you don't hear much of the nightlife.
Very well equipped rooms (kitchen with cutlery, pots, etc.). Spacious bathroom, balcony. Free Wi-Fi.

I asked to be put in a group with young people and was happy with my group when we got together, the instructor was a bit of a dick to start off with, but he got better as the day on, ...
... bacon and egg muffin for breakfast, it was very yummy! I also brought a bag of sweets for the plane and used up the last of my change! When the gate number showed up on the screen I walked down and it wasn't long before we got on the plane! The plane journey was brilliant!!
