At times it felt a little like the British TV show Benidorm, but overall it was lovely. Very relaxing, great location (literally 5min walk to a clean beach), the pool was beautiful, some of the loungers need to be replaced but I really don't have a complaint. I stayed with my mum for a week, we ate the buffet breakfast... More

For those looking for a place to relax by the pool and take advantage of a clean, sandy beach within short walking distance this is perfect. The bus stop is very near with access... More

Dirty, untidy and construction materials left unsupervised. When we arrived at Minerva Dore we were extremely upset with the hotel's overall condition. It need cleaning, it looked abandoned... More

My wife, daughter, and I really enjoyed our stay at the Minerva Dore hotel. We had a very spacious room with a beautiful sea view. The spacious balcony had a screen door so we could keep the doors open all night, the AC off, the bugs out, and the cool breeze in. Our room also had a sink and cold... More
