The food... Where do I start? Carrots and sprouts for breakfast?? It was all very strange? Bread was lovely... More

2 adults + 2 big children (9 and 13 years) we choose a Family Maisonette ground floor, during our holiday at the end of June. The room was spacious and clean, fair enough according to the 3* and price paid - if better appreciation wanted improving would be necessary regarding new sheets and towels. One single problem we had: once... More

Stuff was also very kind, especially Ms Vicky on the reception and our two barmans and waiters. Pools were very clean and big. We were there in September, so it... More

the best bit of staying at this hotel is that its very clean and has 4 lovely pool areas of all different sizes and plenty sunbeds. downside is the international food (obviously they need to accomodate everyone) but we didnt starve there was always something there for us to eat and totally adequate for a 3 star however being understaffed...

Do not stay at this hotel. What food they have is awful, I wouldn't feed it to my dog. The staff are rude and obnoxiuos and don't lift the sheets to look at the state to of the mattress. Air con is an extra charge, and trying to find a seat/lounger by the pool after 6am is impossible.
