We spent a week in the hotel this August (2014) and we loved the views and swimming in the sea. The color of the water was simply spectacular and we'll worth bringing your goggles with you. Note that there are many stairs as the hotel is built on a hill but well worth if you don't mind too much The... More

My partner and I have just returned from a very relaxing ten day holiday at this hotel. We found all areas of the hotel to be clean and well maintained, including the 81 steps from our room up to the restaurant and pool area! The views here are stunning, as they are in a the towns we drove to to... More

This is a very large hotel with many stairs. For those who are unfit or have knee issues do not contemplate. The meals are average buffet style. The service at reception is good but there was no wifi the whole week we were there. So for anyone who is on a working holiday...avoid! The night entertainment seemed fun except that... More

I arrived for my stay at the Peninsula Hotel at 11pm, having travelled for 12 long hours to get there and upon arrival I was given a brief rundown on the meal plans, entertainment and the services offered by the hotel. I was then nonchalantly told that my room wasn't ready and would have to spend the night in a... More

We had arrived to the Peninsula hotel for a vacation of 4 nights. Our room was facing an amazing view of the bay (paid extra for this). The resort is pretty big and our room was located in middle. the pool, beach and the restaurant was close. We had the half board included but we were very disappointed from the... More

We just come back today from a weekend at this hotel, what should I begin with?! 1. First of all.... the never ending stairs! All over the place! Nothing but stairs! We came there with a 18 months baby & we had to carry his stroller up and down every time!!! Our legs got cramps after a few hours there.... More

Hotel is on the rock ... means beautifull view and lot of stairs. We didnt have problem with that, but IMHO it is not a hotel for lazy legs. From beach to our room we went through 200 steps :) Rooms are small, clean with small bathroom. Enough for people who are all day out of hotel. Usually there are... More

It was nice to be at a relaxing all-inclusive near the end of our month long trip. However, service was not the best. In fact several of the employees looked like they'd rather be any place else. Food was mediocre but we could always find something to eat. Ice must be at a premium because when we'd go to get... More

The first impression was very bad, because they gave as a room which is in a building far from main build and we had to walk a lot to go to restaurant. Other problem was that to get to the room we had to go 3 levels underground and walk ~100 meters in the corridor like in a metro. We... More
