Extremely good value that includes gym, swim and spa. Gym is compact but sufficient.

Being inside a luxury hotel, you get a mix of families, locals and travellers. However, the place was never too busy and is kept very clean. You get a towel to use and showers have shampoo and body wash.

The gym is small but adequate for my needs although sometimes very busy and you may have to wait for equipment. The pool is great, although gets quite busy at peak times.

Great Reception staff. Has everything on a small to medium scale.. Gym is small to medium, with weights, standing and free. Cardio, some of the best Cross trainers I have worked on. Swimming pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. Ladies changing room lacks air conditioning so may be hot at times!
