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. There is very friendly atmosphere among all. Beach is really beautiful. Fitness centre can satisfy even professional athlete. Bench press and all one can need. Quality of rooms are average, but...

From my point of view - "diving accomodation" with breakfast and dinner - is this place not bad choice. Some of staff's are very friendly, some of them... More

The beach. The beach is definitely the advantage of the hotel. Really clean, sandy entrance, Chrystal seawater so you even see your own feet! Not deep, and its a problem if you want to dive into the water. Approximately at 12 pm it's a low water period which lasts to 3-4 pm. I have to face it: the beach is... More

For an incredible price (it was quite cheap) we got comfort, a very nice room, and a very clear beach. Breakfast was varied and they had great omelets! The room was really comfortable, clean, recently restored I assume, with special attention in the bathroom. Really, for the quiet vacation we needed, it was just perfect, though I would love to...
