We were sold this hotel (through inspired luxury escapes) on the basis that it was a luxury 5* resort perfect for families.. In reality it has got to be one of the dirtiest, shabbiest, most poorly run hotels we have ever had the displeasure of staying at. There is no way this hotel should be given 5* status it makes...

Stayed at this hotel last autumn and it was great to visit an area where I had previously great memories of. If you’re looking for a romantic and relaxing time with your other half, or a holiday with the whole family and (why not!) the in-laws, then this place is for you! Personally, there is nothing better than spending time... More

Great views great staff great holiday. We stayed here for 2 weeks all inclusive and to be honest didn't want to leave. From the day time entertainment staff (Karima and Mario) to the restaurant staff and bar staff at night (Giannis and Emmanuella) nothing is to much trouble. We used the Spa a few times too also very good very... More

We have stopped here now 7 times and we love it, a great place to stay, lovely staff, breakfasts are fine and late meals done if you need them and with the free airport shuttle the perfect place to overnight before a flight.

This hotel is in a stunning location right on a cliff side, with amazing sea/cliffe views. There is a shuttle to transport to and from different areas in the resort, as walking could be difficult for the not so fit and healthy tourist. The main reason for writing a comment is for the very helpful, accommodating, caring staff. We would... More
