We stayed at the hotel from 27/12/15 to 3/1/15. We had 2 days of hot weather, which was disappointing. The swimming pools were freezing! There was a good variety of food each day. The room was cleaned to a high standard. This hotel would be a great place to stay in the summer.

Just spent an all-inclusive week here and was very pleasantly surprised. I think a lot of the reviews on here give negative points are a tad unfair. Firstly, the room we had was a really good quality. Had it's own balcony which was lovely, spacious bathroom and a comfortable bed. The TV worked and had a list of channels -... More

Booked for a chilled week all inclusive and we found both the hotel and location excellent. The food was faultless and there was plenty of choice. The hotel was spotless and our rooms were serviced daily. Very friendly staff who were happy to help. The only downside of the hotel was the pool which is beautiful however, cold in the... More

We were worried after reading many negative reviews but overall we enjoyed our week all inclusive. Thought the food was very good, plenty of choice - and nicely presented - very good staff in the restaurant. Our room was very clean but certainly not in the best place. We had 443 and 444 which overlooked the hotel bins and delivery... More

We paid 1200 for 2 adults at end of August. With only 4 days notice for this holiday we didn't have time to trawl through reviews and convince ourselves it would be awful - as some do! We arrived around half nine and they had kept food back for our arrival from the main buffet dinner. Started great! While place... More

I dont know where to begin. The hotel looks ugly from the front, needs brightening up. Had to move rooms as we were placed right above the entertainment area. The rooms are dark and gloomy. There is no air/con in the rooms, no heating in the rooms, no extractor fan in the bathroom, the plug socket is away from the... More
