Putting the 'standard' room aside (which did have a lovely pool and sea view), and lack of air conditioning downstairs - especially in the Captain's Bar where most needed - this hotel provided my family with a wonderful two week holiday. We could have stayed longer - with an upgraded room. Though, we believe all the rooms are being gradually... More

Wow where do I begin! This hotel is a five star hotel and nothing under! We traveled with Thomson and had an easy journey. We was greeted by a nice young butler who carried our suitcases in. We checked in and they gave us a free 15 minute massage voucher (which was delightful). They gave us their hotel manual to... More

Went with Thomsons. Rooms were a basic size and not particularly special. The extras are what made it a 4 star plus e.g bathrobes, safe, choice of pillows and range of toiletries. As the hotel is on the main street it does not any grounds so the pool is situated between two parts of the building without any grass areas.... More

Spent 1 week here (11-18 August ) and absolutely loved it. Our room had a sea view (501), as recommended by other reviewers, and was spacious, well equipped and very clean. It was a little tired though, especially the bath, but perfectly acceptable. It had a large balcony, free safe, hairdryer, TV, cd player, excellent, quiet air conditioning and a... More

Overall we spent a lovely relaxing week at this hotel at the end of July. No listening to people sneaking out at 6am in the morning to put down towels, you can go across to the beach anytime and find somewhere to relax for the day. We travelled as a couple with our teenage son. We booked an All Inclusive... More

This was my second stay at the hotel but decided to visit with my partner this time. The flight was delayed so we had a late arrival. On checking in a very welcome drink was offered and a voucher for lunch at the Restaurant at the front given. We were given an upgraded room to full sea view. The room... More
