Reception staff spoke little English and made no effort to try, but bar, restaurant and cleaning staff friendly. Guests 80% German but most were amicable.Upgraded to all-inclusive but most of the promised extras were never on offer. Unable to get a late check out despite trying all week. Entertainment minimal, better at Pabisa beach club but had to pay for... More

Very small room but clean. Reception staff officious,and not all giving the same advice and information.food plentiful but restrictive for the English palate. This Hotel is mainly set up to cater for the German traveler.very poor entertainment programme at this time of year. if you have young children do not go as very little for them to do.

If you want to have a relaxing vacation, this is not the hotel you are looking for. There is a veery high risk of overselling, so there is a chance you'll have to spend a night in another hotel. 90 procent of the people here are german, and that means a lot of noise till the early morning. They really... More

We arrived late saturday night after a flight delay, and were welcomed by a good looking man with glasses of wine (always a treat). Our room was small but very clean and really quite comfortable, and we had a perfect view of the bar... More

Hi, we are a couple from Portugal. We stayed for a 7 days period and we had a good stay. We kinda knew we would be at german territory but i must say this is what made a bad impression out of the hotel and area. The Germans lack manners, especially when it comes to leaving the beach clean and... More

Also the staff is very kind and always helpfull. It was also very quite over there (except a few singing germans). The pool is tidy but rather... More
