Just returned after an 11 night holiday here. Thank goodness we are now home as this is the worst holiday I have ever had. Families with young children would think this hotel was absolutely great but unfortunately there was nothing for older children i.e. 15 year olds. Checking in was efficient however, as we arrived at 12 noon we had... More

Let's start with the negatives, don't expect the 'Ritz' , rooms are basic, breakfast was below average (poor quality bacon, scrambled eggs and Juices and cereals and always a q for the toaster that took forever to toast), communal areas, stairs etc could all do with a good paint and don't expect much in the line of english speaking channels...

We stayed AI as a family of 8 (4x adults, 16, 15, & 2x 12yr olds) from 13-27 Aug and I’d recommend this hotel, especially to those with young children. I’d say that the rooms were fine (Island side 830,831,832 1st floor)– small kitchenette with fridge, kettle, toaster, hob & mini oven. Apartment was cleaned regularly, clean towels if needed...
