Very nice and clean hotel, employees were very friendly. The food was delicious with a big selection of all the types of food. Rooms are big enough, all of them have air conditioner and TV. The view from balcony is beautiful, on the pool and the sea. There are animators, who organised water aerobics, football and volleyball on the beach,... More
