Nice enough hotel but lacked atmosphere wherever you went, be it the reception hall , the restaurant or the pool side. Music around the pool bar would have been nice and indeed the evening musical entertainment was, at best, insipid. Food good , buffet style , plentiful , but mass catered. Didn't realize , but the swimming pool is a... More

I would definitely recommend this hotel for young couples, girlie holidays and anyone who wants a relaxing holiday! The customer service at the hotel was next to nothing, upgrading our room free of charge because we wanted a sea view room, giving us extra pillows, booking excursions for us and much more. The room was very clean, no complaints with... More

We were only here for 3 nights on a property hunt and the agent had arranged the hotel for us. We had a large apartment (320) - 2 bedrooms, a seating area, kitchen diner, bathroom and en suite shower room to the master bedroom. The balcony was spacious. It was overlooked by several other balcony's which didn't bother us but... More

We have now stayed at this hotel three times, and it continues to impress. Staff, particularly at reception are friendly and helpful at all times. Language barrier can be a bit of a problem with some of the non English speaking staff. Our choice of room was willingly accommodated after we had emailed the hotel in advance. Unfortunately, the air... More

As we have very hectic lives we like to completely relax when we go on holiday and this location allows us to do that. We enjoy the fact that it is a small village with only... More

Rooms nice, clean, well equipped bathroom, balcony - with table and chairs give the opportunity to debate the evening at sunset. The air-condi noisy and not effective. The hotel is officially 4 star but I would give it 3 and a... More
