We booked to go for a short week in the sunshine and was not disappointed with the weather. The hotel is basic and we did upgrade to a much bigger and cleaner room which only cost an extra £80 for the week (our holiday was cut short due to the current unrest and we were evacuated 3days into our holiday),...
