The rooms are a little tired and depending on where your room is there can be a lot of stairs but we didn't find this a problem. The food was plentiful and good, the al a carte... More

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

When we first arrived there was a smell of urine in the room. The animation team was non-existant with no activities during the day even though the timetable said... More

nice hotel for families with children. But it is not suitable for elderly people - you need to walk down to the beach and up to the restaurant. You may call to reception and ask for minibus, but actually, minibus doesn't work regularly and arrives only to take guests from the beach.
