Service in the buffet restaurant was great, couldn't fault it, the Mediterranean one was also perfect. Staff all very nice and friendly. Nice size pools (although they were very cold in... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Excellent staff and service. Food was good too. We did't quite enjoy the Ala cart restaurant as much. Thought the normal restaurant was quite good. The outdoor pool was a bit cold but we enjoyed the indoor pool a lot. The local beaches were within walking distance. The staff very kindly organised... More

We stayed here for 10 nights in August. Room was really clean and spacious and had everything we needed. The kitchen didn't really serve any purpose apart from having a fridge. There was a hob but no pans, a kettle was provided but no tea or coffee as you would normally get in a hotel. The good was ok but... More
