The hotel still got the lovely calming feeling but throughout my 5 years each summer there. I can tell that the service is getting worse,bad food and boring programs. the staff you used to love 80% of them left. Hospitality is not as warm as it used to be.

This is a great place for families with young children. The sand is soft and tender, there's a huge number of sunbeds and umbrellas, so you can come any time and still find a nice place for sunbathing and relaxing. Food is good, dinners have grill food of different kinds. There are restaurants a-la-cart with romantic atmosphere and tasty food,... More

Accommodation: Nice clean and renovated bungalow, about 30 meters from the beach and restaurants - super! Meals: Delicious, but poor choice. Once a week, fresh tuna, otherwise every day white oily fish, some pangasius. Twice a week the Egyptian evening and barbecue... More

Clean sea and beach. I've travelled with daughter, so, chosen this hotel for these reasons. We lived in bungalow on the first line direct to the sea. It was very well. To have this room, you need to pay 15-20$ on reseption, when you arrived. So, the accomodation was perfect. Cleaning service was good, i gave 2$ tips once in... More

It was our second stay in that hotel. Nothing has changed since two years ago. Feeding and drinks are good. Service is descent. All nations you can see there.
