As an all inclusive hotel we were told that all guests had to wear wristbands but we saw lots of people walking around the hotel and the pools and even eating in the dining halls without them. The beach was a public beach and so anyone could... More

Dear Sir, Thank you very much for your feedback. We are sorry we could not offer the service requested during this time. Since the hotel operates as an All Inclusive and for security reasons the porters always ask anyone who enters the resort if he/she is a guest of the hotel. There are three possible options that our porters offer... More

The hotel is very beautiful and clean, as well as the rooms, which had a stunning view to the sea. The staff is extremely friendly, warm, polite and welcoming. We really enjoyed the food, which...

Stayed in bungalow's part of the hotel with small beach area close by, which were very comfortable. Hotel staff is very professional and friendly. Any claims or issue were rectified immediately.

Spent a wonderful 10 days in September here. Many aspects are 5 star, and especially the hard working but always smiling & helpful staff. However, we didn’t realise in advance, as we booked with Easyjet – the difference between the main building Maris (by the beach) & main building Terra (uphill & across the bridge). To us, the location &... More

A really nice hotel with decent food and nice staff. We would go again. I would day however that some of the hotel could do with refurbishing as its a wee bit dated. Overall though well worth a visit.
