We arrived for seven nights, and were immediately upgraded to a suite. This was on the north side of the hotel overlooking the tennis courts. apart from the dogs barking it was nice and quiet. Two large rooms both with their own TV. A bathroom, bath with shower (no good for people who have difficulties). Two washbasins and a hairdryer.... More

We booked a superior room but were upgraded to a junior suite at the seaside part but overlooking the swimming pool (room 57). Room was very nice. We had 2 large beds, a... More

I'll make it quick and short. Lousy rooms. Poor food and pool area. Worst location for beach access (full of rocks and it is the narrowest part of the beach which gets full easily). Terrible service from staff members. I arrived to this hotel because a friend recommended it to me. I will not follow my friend's future recommendations (but... More
