This year we decided we wanted to have a all inclusive holiday and just relax... Well when we arrived it seemed ok, but as soon as they realised we were English they didn't seem to pleased. Staff were very blunt to us and seemed much more polite to other guests. The facilities weren't great there are a couple of pools... More

We had a really negative experience of this hotel and would advise you all to stay away from it. My partner and me booked an all inclusive stay for last week and we aren't happy by what we received for the money. There's a number of problems here. First off, it isn't really all inclusive in the strictest sense of... More

We arrived to be given the worst room going but told we could change the following day. We did so to get a room with a fantastic view and the staff going out of their way to help us. Food is ok and the pools are ok as it goes. Nice indoor pool, sauna and jacuzzi.

after high expectations thoroughly disappointed due to lack of facilities for children, entertainment was only for the French/foreign people and was not understandable, you have to go on a hike to the nearest shop, and the term 'all inclusive' needs looking up as I'm sure they don't know what it means. for a day or two the pool is acceptable...

The ones we encountered during our stay were the most rude people I've come across and this hotel definitely favours them to the British. Beware the food in the restaurant. No butter or milk one morning! The staff serving at the pool bar were excellent. Same can't be said for reception female staff who never smiled unless you were French.... More

We stayed here all inclusive over Easter 2014. The hotel is clean and we found the staff to be quite pleasant when we convinced them that we were not French who formed the vast bulk of the clientele, whom they seemed to hate with a passion and for whom we had bizarrely been mistaken. The outdoor pool is incredibly cold... More

No balcony and with the window opening being quite low I would not leave children unsupervised in this room. Room clean and fairly well lit. Bathroom was very good with a large bath and lots of hot water.The... More
