So when we checked into the hotel, we were directed to the elevators, which were not working. So we carried our own bags up the stairs and found our room. We tried to turn on the Air Conditioning, but it did not work. We thought it might be due to the sliding door not being fully closed, but we checked,... More

We are staying in the hotel at present and we are disappointed to the point of tears. We booked after seeing the pictures on their website. On arrival we got a terrible green room, with a mouldy bathroom and a small terrace that overlooks the entrance roof and the road on the side. After speaking to reception, they gave us... More

First off, this is not a 4 star hotel. Despite what their website says. And the usual booking sites say, this is no 4* hotel. They told me that they lost that status is May and are "working towards" regaining it. Let´s leave aside the economy with the truth on their website shall we? And say instead that, if they... More

I`ve spent here 2 weeks with my husband and daughter (3 years). We liked practically everything - interior, the level of the comfort, servise, landscape. Two outdoor swimming pools (one small for children and one 30/15, my daughter prefered big one) and one indoor (it was opened when it was raining or strong wind), not big but confortable enough. Staff... More

My cousin and I booked this hotel for a last minute holiday..... It is tucked down a side road and hard to find at first (but that is because the transfer company were rubbish - not the place!). On arrival we were greeted by the friendliest doorman who helped us into the lift. The room is perfectly fine, our room... More

The rooms were very small and the beds worn out. we were on the 2nd floor with a good view of the swimming pool but the railings on the balconies didn't look secure enough for our two young kids.

Outside poolside bar good service and reasonable prices. Room was large... More
