Admire the beautiful sunset. Was most pleased with my son and not appear out of the water. A ticket bought for 5 days, but the son wanted to stay and yet we extended for one more day. Room simple but clean. Fan did not work but we changed it. In the room there was no tv, but outdoor cinema on the street saved us. In the dining room are preparing tasty, but have to stand in line. You can order pizza, kebabs, basically okay too, but the skewers staff. On the third day, and much nicer to us changed free of charge. Happy holiday. We plan to go again.
