On arrival at the hotel, my friend and I were delighted as it looked lovely, the room was very pleasant, however, we had booked a twin and received a double, but we were prepared to put up with it, worse was to come, when we opened the curtain onto the balcony we were shocked! It had one tiny table and... More

After staying in many 4* hotels all over the world I cannot help but compare this hotel. Things that could improve this hotel from an OK to a GREAT 4* hotel are as follows; Some of the staff could smile or engage in conversation which would make your stay more pleasant. The pool is FREEZING even in August, heating is... More

Having travelled for more than 30 years in my profesionnal carreer worldwide, I have learned to distinguish a good hotel by a sniff off the nose.

We booked this hotel last minute for a week in the sun. It has good facilities and a clean, spacious pool area with plenty of sun loungers. The rooms are a bit dated but are large and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. The cocktails were nice and the pool bar food was good. On the downside though:- -... More

We had a lovely time at the Baia Grande on Honeymoon. The room was lovely and the food and facilities were great. (Sauna, jacuzzi) The other patrons were mainly mature holiday goers, so it was quiet, and not rowdy in anyway. It is a bit further out, which makes it a nice peaceful spot compared to the other hotels we... More
