We visited the Palmarina hotel with a last minute reservation (much appreciated from hotel staff). BUT the hotel is very old and ugly, Rooms look OK but ants get to wander freely on the floor and in the beds which makes sleeping rather difficult. Also, rooms have no internal phones so we could not call reception if we needed anything. Staff did not inform us about breakfast so we missed it. The pool area is even worse and it gets very loud at night. Basically the hotel is not recommended, The next night we moved to the Maimouna hotel which was much better!
