Too formal

Great breakfasts but it needs to relax in the evening and be less like a 5 star and more like a resort hotel!

The restaurant and bar are excellent! Gourmet... More

The food in all the locations at this hotel was absolutely disgusting. From breakfast, lunch by the pool to room service and the very old fashioned Nesos restaurant. No management was ever on site to talk to us either.

Average food, poor staff (my plate was plonked in front of me) and overcharged at the end. Lack of English made solution very hard.

We chose fish for our main course it was fresh and expertly cooked .The tuna was cooked to perfection, the best that I have tasted in a long time. The waiters are attentive,pleasant and helpful. We found that the waiters... More
