Headed over to Camelot for a trip with 8 friends. The early start was worth claiming prime position next to pool adjacent pool tanning and day beds. The restaurant and pool section look relatively new - both excellent. Stay for the sunset it's a stunner! The beach is solid - toasty water and soft sand. Staff were friendly - hooked... More

The reception staffs are unfriendly & least helpful. Internet in the room is absurd. Room toilet has no ventilation. Choose this hotel only if you're a beach person otherwise is a strict no go. There are no lift facility & it is a walk up the stairs. Morning breakfast is gòod though.

The rooms were reasonably comfortable . While we found the rooms and ambience acceptable, we were disappointed with the quality and range of food at the buffets . The beach is easily accessible and the pool area very nice .

We find this hotel quite agreeable, especially since the new wing and restaurant are finished. Staff doing its best to serve and they seem mostly to understand english. Good service. We stayed in room 137 in a new wing and although the free wifi was told only to work at the pool or in the lobby we could connect easily... More

Clean and neat room, friendly staff, beach facing pool and bar for a sunset drink and amazing food. Hotel is under renovation and things are looking like this hotel is going to be amazing after the make over. Good value for money.

the hotel location is excellent. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Special thanks to the recreation manager mr. Upali if I'm not mistaken and the breakfast sous chef at the buffet. They make our stay with a smile. The very bad thing was the light interruption. We check in with our baby and she cry a lot due to... More

On the plus side, location is good, rooms are comfortable and clean and beachside loungers and seats are nice for a sunset drink or a couple of hours of lounging in the sun. On the negative side, the hotel is currently under renovation, so it's very noisy. Breakfast restaurant is very ugly and buffet very disappointing. Reception staff were not... More
