Experienced a last minute change of venue by the Travel Agent so not our choice of Hotel ... The place is clean enough but most of the staff (did come across an occasional exception) cant be bothered trying to help ... especially with activities - things to do and places to visit. Food was plentiful but tasteless - in trying... More

We stayed for two weeks and it was quite decent. There were lots of things to do such as windsurfing, kitesurfing and mini golf and we had a good time. There was wifi, although expensive and slow. The heated pool was a particular highlight for the parents.

Helpful staff, not willing to help just for money as said by some people. Food is rubbish, from breakfast to dinner every thing is almost the same every day with extremely low quality food. Baverages are always always served with room temprature never chilled. They run out of cups and dishes very quickely. No wifi. That was the worst ever... More

This was the worst hotel i have ever accommodated in, it was a very tough experience, worst food ever, rubbish service, very far from everything. You won't find any food after the dinner meal which is rubbish, you can't even order food from anywhere after this time because it is very far from all the outlets. No wifi and not... More

Positive is the beach, especially if you have small children or want to learn to wind surf or kite surf. You can walk 75 meter into the sea and you're still only half submerged. From the first moment you arrive, they start to ask you for tips. Check in is at 14:00, you can get your room now, but... We... More

First impression was that the receptionist asked 30$ to accommodate us as soon as possible. Second was that the room was supposed to be a good one. To the contrary, nothing good. Old furniture, so the TV, AC not cooling but noisy, a lot of insect and the bathroom was a chapter itself. A lot of dirt all over, the... More
