Very clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We had a sea view room and the view was fantastic, worth the extra money. Food is great, breakfast was very good indeed; lots of choice available and even sparkling wine if you wanted it. The table staff in all the restaurants were great. We enjoyed the Italian themed evening,... More

The Residences are great if you have kids. They are affiliated with the hotel and we have stayed here loads of times before. Usually I have never had anything to complain about. Unfortunately this time I have to say they've let their standards slip. We waited 45 minutes for a burger and a Greek salad at the pool,cos we were... More

Fantastic hotel, friendly helpfull staff and great location. Slightly high drink prices compared to local bars but that can be expected. Easily the best hotel in the area and serves very good food. Thanks for a great holiday.

My wife and I have just returned from a fantastic weeks holiday and we cannot speak highly enough of the hotel. The staff were extremely attentive, the rooms were modern, clean and spacious and the food was excellent. We have stayed in many 5* hotels around the world. It may not be the best in luxury or quality but it... More

excellent service as always. if your expecting a british 5 star this isnt it, more like 4, but more than enough for our requirements, and a fantastic base for exploring the islands. far easier and cheaper to use the designated hotel ferry but well worth paying the extra for a private water taxi on your return trip.

This was a most enjoyable experience.The hotel was a 5 star in every aspect. The staff, food, service, and value were what one would expect from a hotel of this standard.THERE IS NO ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT.We will return.The tuk tuk tour from the hotel of Olhao is to be recommended as is a visit to the islands.
