Resort is nice and clean, with good location next to the beach. It has 2 outdoor swimming pools, but in use only during the summer. They advertise them SPA, but there is only 1 indoor swimming pool, very very small and cold. Rooms are big and quite well maintainted, but buildings are not connected, so you need to go outside...

Shame there isn't a 3.5 rating as it was definitely above average but wouldn't go as far as saying Very Good...however it doesn't deserve a 3. Rooms were nice size and clean, reception staff were attentive and helpful and in season would be a bit sharper I think. Food was a problem as was told we would have a 2... More

Don't expect too much from this place. The rooms are big and clean, and the staff is very nice but the pools are small, the food is bad, there's not much to do and the buffet restaurant is in one building not connected to the other two so if it's raining you'll get wet on the way over.

We have visited the Hotels "Spa" area during a rainy day. What we found was a extremly dirty dressing room and pretty old pool and fitness area. It was obvious that the whole area is not maintained at all and cleaned up pretty rare. The dirt we found was old and was not occurred due to a onetime mistake. Whirlpool... More

New resort with very pleasant staff, always smiling and ready to help beyond duty. Our daughter had accident, cut her chin, we 've had a manager of resort personally getting involved helping us to arrange treatment in local surgery. That is just one example. The restarurant staff always smiling, accomodating any need. Good choice of dishes, very patient with children.... More

Nice hotel, friendly personel. Me and my girlfriend stayed there for 2 nights in the end of April. The only thing that let me a little disapointed was the SPA part. There is a very small internal heated pool and one jacuzzi. The sauna was turned off when we visited the SPA. Also the fitness is composed by 3 bikes... More
