The hotel (>400 beds) has great archtiecture, very good food and excellent service, provided by well trained employes. The only drawback you might experience is the location of the family apartments, which are located directly next to the road which can be very loud in the night, ecspecially in case of motonikes. Try to get one of the apartments of... More

We stayed at the beginning of September for one week. The moment we parked the car .and entered the hotel it was obvious that this was a hotel of quality. The first point of call was reception to check in and then to the room. Ultra clean and bright and a very comfortable feel about the place. The buffet dinners... More

Perfect hotel, the food was pretty good, pretty huge international kitchen, you can both try out foreign food and feel home with your own place one! Swimming pool is big and fun, the room is big and clean, I would certainly suggest this hotel to a friend!

From the moment we arrived the team at the hotel couldn't do enough for everyone. The food, mini club(for the kids), drinks and the evening entertainment was excellent, couldn't fault a thing. Will be returning in the near future, best hotel ever. Only feedback would be to have child proof locks on all room/apartment doors.

We gained the experience of this hotel just a week ago, spending a week in this facility. When i read the review of PauloSAndFamily, i knew that my thoughts had been expressed by another guest, and he drew the same conclusions that i had done. The hotel is in a 50 minutes transfer from the airport, and is located in... More

We spent 2 weeks in an all-inclusive vacation at this hotel. The room they setup for us (we were 4, 2 adults, 1 kid and a baby) was excellent and seemed like a Junior Suite. There is a single large pool, with one side for kids to play in and the other starts off at 1,10m. We never got to... More

Check in was quick and welcoming by Conchita who could not have been more helpful, although our room was not quite ready it gave time to have lunch and quick look about.The set up is very nice with a massive pool with a...

The location was great as the beach... More

I have never written a review before but felt I had to write about this fantastic place. Myself and my husband cannot find fault and all aspects of our 11 night stay were excellent. The food is absolutely lovely and there is always so much choice at all meal times. The hotel is spotless with cleaners evident almost as soon... More

We had an excellent holiday. 16 of us stayed for a week. The pool was fantastic one of the best I've seen. There was plenty to do round the pool during the day for both adults and kids. The location of the hotel was quiet and there wasn't a lot of english tourists. The hotel was very clean and the... More
