Good for a short break

Good for a short break. If you have poor mobility the hills to rooms etc can be a bit much. It's not really a hotel it's more like a compound as the self catering areas have been turned into rooms now but are approx up to 5 mins from hotel ammenities

The best thing about my stay was...

Close to beach. Well ran hotel, strict with people who over step the mark.

2/10 Okay

17 February 2018

never had worse

the receptionist makes you feel as if you are taking up their time and you know nothing. even if you simply want to return a hair dryer and there is 8 people lining up to get registered they won't take the hairdryer even though you would think it just takes two seconds to hand it over. The heating in the room did not work. the mechanic came and knew nothing, he then brought an oil radiator. The blinds in the room did not work, the outside light was just outside the window so all night it felt like it is a day time and I could not get a sleep. 5 from 6 days we had to go or dial the reception to ask for towels, they were either removed completely or replaced my one set only. Out double bed was two single beds pushed together and it's kind of a joke to sleep with your partner like that. We had all inclusive . It' s great for drinks, but the food was horrible. if it said squid rings it did not mean it was a squid but could be a fish mince rings in batter. all food was bad quality as if from frozen pre-cooked packaging. The restaurant staff seemed to be very tired from their job and life in general, no smiles. one girl in particular was slamming the drawer, pulling the table cloth the way that all leftovers flew onto my wife's dress and she did not even apologise.

The best thing about my stay was...

they packed my lunch if i went to a trip

Bharti

Great location by the beach. Good food but often had to ask if the food was vegetarian as poor labelling. Friendly staff at the bar and the restaurant. Room given to us had cockorches and other insects so we asked to be moved. Our return flight was at 9.30pm but we were given lunch but we're told after that we'll have to pay for everything. Free bus from the hotel to the town was never on time as they have one bus between 2 or 3 hotels.

The best thing about my stay was...

Clean beach within minutes
9/10 Fantastic

Brilliant!!

We have just returned home after a fantastic stay at Monica Isabel. Our room was lovely and the food was excellent - we couldn't fault it. The food choices were great - there was always plenty to choose from and everything was well cooked. The staff were friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely come back.

The best thing about my stay was...

The location and food.

Fantastic Hotel!

This is my second time staying here! No major issues. Pros- food is good - drink is fine (local spirits) -good location -friendly staff -great value for money Cons- in the 3* apartment part it can be a little bit of a trek to main hotel (not an issue for us but can be sims some) -rooms are a little dated and basic (again not a problem for us)

The best thing about my stay was...

Close to the beach
