We stayed at the Gladiola Star the first week in July 2014. Most of the recent reviews here are correct. This hotel caters to young (mostly German) teens. The ones we talked to were still in high school. The come here to party. This is not a hotel for families. The room we were given had an airconditioning malfunction and... More

I've just returned from this Hotel after 2 weeks stay, the only criticism is that they allow All Male Groups, which is not suitable for couples and children, as they are very noisy, in the restaurant, bars and corridors at night, returning from night clubs around 4-5am being noisy and continually knocking doors, only had a couple of nights good...

Hotel has a very central locations, beside shops the beach and bars.  Due to its location you will experience a lot of noise from the bars right through to the early hours of the morning.  Requesting a room at the rear of the hotel will stop any noise from the bars but will mean you over look trees, it's definitely...

I have just returned from 2 weeks staying in the 3* Gladiola Hotel. This has got to be one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. The hotel was full of young Germans who found it hilarious to play football in the corridors at 4.30am, also singing and shouting - nothing was done about this. I was staying... More

Absolute hotel from hell. If you get plonked here instead of the Atlas, contact your travel agent now and request a free replacement to anywhere but here!! It has no kids club, evening entertainment and the pools are at the front of the hotel, with no barriers to stop children running onto the busy road. I have never left a... More

We were so pleased to be given a sea view on the 4th floor but this soon changed when night came around. Unfortunately we had a disco directly opposite which started about 9pm and went on till about 4.30am-... More

Hotel was full of young german teenagers who were drinking and listening loud music. Disco music until 5 AM in the morning into your windows. Food is poor. Reception was unable to order taxi. Only good thing was cleaning of rooms, cleaning ladies were nice and helpfull.
