We found the accommodations to be satisfactory with no complaints or issues. Especially enjoyed having a sofa in our room so we were able to visit with friends in a living room type setting.

Clean room. Dated decor. Karaoke bar had a lot of middle-aged locals. I didn't go in the pool, but the water was murky. Beware that the minimal breakfast ends at 9, though they were nice and let me take some pastries and coffee after it had closed.

We had a room that was close to the hotel pub and suffered through noise/vibrations from the live band until the early morning hours on Saturday. Recommend getting a room away...
