Super view but paid for a sea front room. Requested a high floor and was allocated the 9th top floor it was brilliant. Super sunsets right in front of you from balcony.Very limited shops and had to go via public bus to get cigarettes, a no good resort if you smoke and want to bring cigs back.. Very disappointed at...

We stayed here in 2006, 2007, and 2008. We loved it and had great memories but after 6 years away, would the reality live up to the memory. As you've probably guessed form my rating, the answer is "Yes!". Having picked up the car at the airport, we made the short (and quiet) drive to the hotel. First change was... More

This hotel was perfect. I could get around the hotel easily and there is a lift and steep ramp down to the beach. The ramp is a bit scary the first time but one gets use to it. Lots of friendly people to talk to.

We stayed here for a week in October, half board, and had a wonderful holiday. We were upgraded to a room on the top floor (Melia Rewards member) which was great. The rooms are smallish but have plenty of storage and the view is spectacular. The fridge is very useful for keeping drinks and snacks in. Meals are varied, choice... More

The hotel, food and entertainment were excellent. The beach setting was perfect surrounded by trees. The sea was calm and safe. The room was excellent with a side view of the sea. The views over the bay from the dining room and veranda bar were stunning. Would definitely return.

My husband and I chose this hotel because of the fabulous view, soft sand beach and calm clear sea and we weren't disappointed with the position of the hotel at all. We had a sea view room after upgrading from a side view room at 10 euros per night, but was well worth it. The rooms are not large and... More
