We had high hopes for this hotel but it is pretty average. The staff on reception are fantastic but thats where fantastic ended. We paid for a sea frontal superior room and what we got was a roof top suit but the wall was so high you couldn't see the sea. The room was basic, the floor was always gritty... More

A small hotel with Arabian style architecture and interior design. All rooms have sea view. The staff were all extremely friendly, and made you feel special. Would certainly recommend this hotel to people who like smaller hotels and the views from the Restruant over looking the bay are stunning.

Upon arrival we where dumped in a yellow/brown nicotine coloured & stinking old room on -1 with garden access. The kitchenette (for which we didn't ask for) has had her best time, the smell in the room was disgusting. I refused to spend the night in here. Eventually we got another room, recently renewed, but this was stinking as well;... More

i checked out this hotel before I went and while there were some not entirely positive reviews, most were very good. We personally found no flaws with this hotel, the staff were wonderful, very professional, not in your face but there when needed. The standard of cleanliness was outstanding, a wonderful fresh smell greeted us each day. The bed linen... More

Beautiful hotel, very helpful and efficient staff, spotlessly clean. Food very disappointing and unappetising. When we arrived we were immediately offered an upgrade to a very recently modernised room-very nice with a large balcony overlooking the pool and the beach/sea. The only drawback was the noise from the Kitchen ventilation system when switched on. We were above the Kitchen and... More

Just returned from a 10 night half board stay. Hotel location lovely, rooms spacious, food very disappointing! Staff embarrassed to serve the evening meal. Avoid booking half board as the menu is set for those staying half board and terrible as people were walking out of the restaurant. I hate complaining but feel I should on this occasion. On a...

Me and my partner booked a 4 night stay at the Hotel Oriental to celebrate my birthday and had a lovely stay. The hotel rooms themselves could do with a little TLC. I had read that they had recently been refurbished, but I don't believe all the hotel rooms were included in this refurb, if there was one. Our ensuite... More
