We was in the hotel second time and the vacation was great. Room was clean, service excellent, the food is tasty. There is lot of activities for children, sand beach is located 15 minutes from hotel. Cons - the room was in corridor with few stairs, which was difficult to go with stroller.

First of all I want to mention that when you are reading comments about this hotel there is a day and night difference between the rooms in the main building (more expensive ones) and the rooms in the other buildings on the domain. The reference we give about this hotel is for a family room in the main building, these... More

Food was decent enough - lots of choice each evening nicely presented if very similar night after night - biggest complaint was rock hard fruit served each night and morning at breakfast... More

Negative: - Attitude of the staff is very poor, at times rude. The lady at the reception I... More

If you like a crowdy place, lots of noise, an impersonal approach, school cafeteria food, expensive wifi, poor breakfast, etc., this is your place to be ! If not, just avoid ! Fortunately we only booked for 4 days, but even then we were very very glad we could leave ..

Many attractions for kids like swimming pools, slides, playground, mini clubs with lots of toys. Kids were happy. Breakfast and dinner were good. No free Wifi. Room was nice, lots of space. Bathroom is big and tidy.

My family and I planned to go many times to this hotel this summer. But after one trip we will not be back. We booked a family room, which is two separate rooms with a door in between. The rooms are large and fit our family of four nicely. However the temperature is not controlled by the thermostat in your... More

Excellent hotel, friendly and helpful personnel and all-in-all beautiful place for active family vacation. Food (breakfast and dinner) is delicious. Hotel is located in a pine forrest and complete Katoro resort is one nice place.

I was in Hotel for 8 days during some conference. Since I was one of the organizers, I often needed help from personnel on reception. Every time I needed something, they were very kind and provided it to me (and my colleagues). I would like to especially commend Ivan and Dalila as the best receptionists ever!
