We were there for our honeymoon a year ago. Despite the golden sands the hotel was awful. disrespectful staffs , the average food, and boring days with just a little entertainment. Just suitable for old people. It was rather a motel than a hotel and just suitable for sleeping and having a breakfast. I don't recommend it at all.

My room was a regular double room, but very spacious with... More

Visited helios spa last summer and was delighted by the warm welcome, spacious rooms and kind staff. The spa facilities were excellent and so was the pool, even though I think they had put slightly more chloride in the water (still it was good to know that they put extra care for health and safety). Food was great and so... More
