The location of this place is stunning, but the hotel itself could be so much better. Maybe it was because we visited at the end of the peak season, but the staff were very rude and unhelpful. Upon checkin my friend and I were given absolutely no information about what the hotel had to offer, and did not even know where breakfast was or from what time. Whenever we approached the desk to ask advice or querstions, we were made to feel like we were interrupting the front desk staff from something more important. We couldn't seem to find any information regarding things to do in the area, and the hotel information provided in the rooms did not offer much. Can't believe there was no wifi in the rooms!!
The drinks were quite expensive however the barman was nice. Was disappointed that there were no real food offerings during the day, like a snack menu or something. The pool area and sun loungers are great but there were a lot of wasps unfortunately, and insect repellant is a definite must.
The breakfast was nice, although for a 4 star place it was disappointing that you had to pay additional for poached eggs, especially as all that was offer were cold hard boiled eggs or scrambled eggs laden with cream.
Would definitely recommend getting a car - we visited a great pizzeria in nearby fertilia, where pizzas are around 5-8 euros - brilliant value. Getting a car also means you can explore some of the beaches up the coast which are out of this world.
