A strange place, located in the middle of the salt lakes. We only stayed for the last night of our holiday, after a week touring. There is no point in booking here without a car, as access is along a paved road which is about 2Km long, with nothing else on it.

Room was ok, bed comfortable, and facilities fine. The breakfast was of acceptable standard, though some items rather iffy.

Pool was deserted. It is inappropriate for a 4* hotel to charge 1 euro for use of a towel at the poolside, and clearly no-one bothered. There is an indoor pool too, but we never saw a soul in it, since there you had to hire a towel AND buy a swimcap for 2 euros. No cap - no swim!

While there our electricity failed completely, and the management took 90 minutes to send anyone to rectify it. It seems the wiring in the whole place is dodgy, so be aware.

Overall, not a bad place, and a great location if you want to get away from it all. But not without its drawbacks.
