If you are expecting 5* look at the price you are paying and ask yourself would you get other 5* hotels for the price you are being charged. 5* hotels are usually leading hotels of the world and this is not one of them. The staff are great. I have no... More

This hotel provided us a clean large room, with a balcony overlooking the most beautiful views of the dramatic landscape and the clear blue sea. The staff are very friendly and helpful, unlike some of the guests! It's seem that a lot of cultures do not believe in queuing which was very frustrating. The meals had a lot of variety.... More

Had a wonderful time visiting with family. After reading the reviews, and since we were traveling with our 86 year old grandfather asked beforehand for a room close to the reception- turned out to be a smart move since some of the rooms are extremely remote,located downhill. We stayed at rooms in the 700 area- perfect location! Still quiet a... More

The hotel is not five star, but rather third. The type of room booked could not be given. Room after room replacement complaint, but would not have ordered a two-storey Maisonnette, but two spaces, one iron bed. The sampoo, shower gel not replaced , towels are cleaning in order. The meals are delicious, lots of variety, but the restaurant itself... More

The food is very good, the room is great, the spa is amazing and it is a must and the service is excellent but especially the bar.
