We have mixed feelings about our weeks stay here, although nothing drastically bad to say, it didn't quite come up to our expectations. We arrived at the hotel about 9pm on Thursday night after a 5 hour flight and an hours transfer by car. There was no one at the entrance and we did feel a little let down taking... More

We have stayed at the Kempinski Soma Bay for a week on half board term. We had a ground floor room near the beach. Whilst we did not care for the sea view, we would ask for a higher floor if we come back to this hotel. The room has a nice set up, a decent size, very well equipped... More
