Except a few small things like we haven't been told that we have to pay for air condition and for a fridge. Everything was very good. Swimming pool was placed around 70 meters from a beach. Separate loungers for hotel residents, without occasional sellers.

...for all the usual reasons, and maybe a few less comment able ones. This is a well managed enterprise. The managers know what their guests want I.e. they know their audience, and they know how to deliver. The resort was built a few decades ago, but you wouldn't know it, since the owners have clearly ploughed back considerable capital to... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful! I would very much recommend the hotel to the families with children. Although there is no children entertainment, but it is possible for... More

Just back from 1 week at this hotel, hotel is just a walk away from all the shops, with many many brand imitations! Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, plenty of space on the beach and pool, although you have to pay 5.40 for 2 but that more or less guarantees a space to enjoy the sun, beach was excellent,...
