me and my two best friends came here for 11 night girly holiday in August 2012 and thought booking 'happy days' would be at least happy but no. there's more rules than a prison! awful staff, accept one lady, can't remember her name but she only liked us because we bought her cocktails a few times. Rooms were disgusting &... More

Well.. In July 2014, I stayed in this establishment for 7 days. We didn't expect much, and we got less. 'Self Catering', sure we were provided pots & pans, but without a hob to cook the food, they are not much use. The fridge didn't work from day 1, after multiple complaints, It still didn't work on day 7. Other... More

Stayed at Happy Days with my sister and best friend for 2 weeks and our stay was faultless. Can't say anything bad about the room, staff or hotel overall. We stayed in hotel most nights and provided amazing cocktails, thanks to the best barman ever Chris and has the entertainment you need for an awesome night. Loved our stay at... More

Family run hotel. The family are amazing, best one is Chris and demetri the security guard. Prices at the bar are very very pricey. Rooms ok. Don't understand how they can justify €50 for jumping in the pool. Very strict with their rules and fines. Get charged for stains on the bedding and towels, when you get the bedding and... More
