Recently stayed at this hotel and although we paid for two superior double rooms with sea view, when we arrived we were allocated two standard double rooms with land view and partial sea view. The rooms were unclean and curtains were hanging off their rail. One of the rooms smelt of cigarette smoke although we were told that smoking is... More

My friends and I turned thirty this summer and we decided to go away together. We wanted somewhere where we could switch off and relax. This was perfect. We got to the hotel just after midnight, on arrival there was an issue with one of our rooms (the electrics weren't working) we were moved into another room as it was... More

No complaints at all regarding the travel agent with everything being booked and correspondence sent as required and expected.

Just returned from an amazing holiday in this wonderful hotel. The setting is just beautiful - blue sea all around and breathtaking views from everywhere on the complex. Lovely food, all home made and authentic. The pools are both lovely, one of them is more lively, but not at all rowdy or too noisy. The entertainment team have it just... More

Overall, the first thing to say is that the hotel and the staff are very good and our holiday was really enjoyable. All inclusive food can be so-so but in fact it was generally better than so-so......not fine dining but we didn't expect that. You can eat outside or inside and the waiting staff are efficient and really personable and... More
