This is a great hotel for couples/families and groups, there is plenty of food available all day up till 11pm, the rooms are very nice, only downside is the rooms get very hot and you have to pay extra for air con which is a unit or a fan they bring to your room.

I have given this hotel a four rating when a 3.5 would be more appropriate. However the numerous headaches we encountered were not all due to the hotel or its staff. Hopefully what I say here will save some of the hassle we experienced during our stay. Firstly the staff were extremely friendly, attentive and helpful in every way with... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our girls week in the sun. Stayed for a week. Plenty selection of food and drinks. Very clean and staff pleasant and friendly. They work very hard. Evening entertainment was probably the worst yet. They cover so many languages they all blend into one and doesn't work.

First of all in this hotel there are no airco's! Our travel agent (Arke/TUI) sold us the hotel with airco. So that was a real disappointment, but I have to be fair. This is not the fault of the hotel. At first we were placed on the 4th floor in room 440. Clean room, good bed but above a very... More
