I have chosen that hotel because of the nice pics on the website, but I should have read more carefully the negative recommentations.. Definitly I was very disappointed. Its no 5star and would get maybe a 3star rating. There is no beach, but you could go swimming in the sea if you walk over stones and ugly smelling seaweed. The room with balcony and the pool were nice, but the Wlan, which was really important for me, was not working in my room and pool area. In the restaurant area the Wlan was ok. Also much more terrible was, that the aircon was defect. After my complains to the manager's doughter she came with a technician who pushed a few times against the switchboard - but... no success. After a while they have fixed it somehow. The next morning the Wlan was working, but due to the really bad connection it was useless.. I used it again in the breakfastroom.
There was also a very strong smell from the gully, but when I complained again, nothing happened. Due to the situation that the doughter was unfriendly and rude to me, I tried to find a solution and I fixed it by myself, because the smell was really too bad and I did not want to have more discussions. I want to spend a nice holiday and not to justify always about problems with the room.
The restaurant was quite ok and the staff there was very friendly. Also the pool bar staff was helpful and very friendly.
I will definitly not come back again and would not recommend it to my friends... A better management, better facility maintenance and customer friendlier attitude of some people here to the customers, who bring their money could make the hotel really a nice jewel.
It's a pity!
