The hotel was just barely OK but isolated from the main resort (which I gather is quite small anyway). We had seen the adverse comments on the lack of quality with the food but we imagined that we could eat out if the food wasn't to our taste.

Club lyda After reading some of the bad reviews, my wife and I were a bit apprehensive about our booking we made with Thomas Cook.

We arrived early hours of the morning and were eventually greeted and shown to our room which was pleasant enough, big and... More

One look on arrival confirms that it's not what you would expect - being nearly underground, facing a wall, damp, dark and almost waiting for... More

Just spent a week at Lyda Studios, we stayed in room 526 and although a nice size and adequate for us the only problems we found was the amount of thick dust under the beds which obviously hadn't been swept for some time. The mattress was so hard we didn't get a complete nights sleep and woke up with aching... More
