This hotel was sold to us as a 5 star hotel by Teletex Holidays, we enjoyed our weeks stay but!!!
The Staff in the hotel are definately 5 star, nothing was too much trouble for them in any department.
We ate in the Italian restaurant for the entire week and it was first class both food and service although I must say the young female waitress has a bit of attitude but this was more than compensated for by the 2 chaps they were excellent.
Breakfast is another matter the choices are diabolical and this desperately needs improving.
Terek our waiter in the lobby bar was first class - our wine glasses were never empty - well done.
The beaches and snorkling are 4 star.
The building itself is rather tired and could do with an overall make up particularily the guest rooms. We were in room 1137 - the toilet bowl has a large crack running round it. The bath is fairly new but the installation was very poor - no grout around some of the tiles and grout all over the rest of the tiles this could have been done better by someone blindfolded. The two chairs on the balcony almost collapsed when I sat on them and I only weigh 12 stone so they were put to one side and we used the arm chairs from in the room. One of the wardrobe doors is almost off it's hinges and the whole room deperately needs a lick of paint. There were no plugs in either the bath or wash basin so I am afraid that the buildings are only 3 star (just).
However we still enjoyed our stay as it was a break from the english weather although we did have a rain storm which required sand bags at the hotel lobby doors ( sandbags should be CLOTH/HESSIAN BAGS NOT PLASTIC BAGS)
The area itself is heavily under construction but this did not interfere with our break. This hotel is predominately used by Russian visitors so you should be aware you are very much the minority
