Hotel location was beautiful, the beach and pool were also fantastic, however the hotel decor was quite tired, and looked for older than its 6 year actual age. Rooms were adequate, my in laws stayed on the first floor, and they had terrible shower pressure, which eventually gave up completely on the last night! Prices within the hotel were horrendous, £6 for a bottle of local beer which cost £1 200meters down the road in the supermarket, and as we didn’t have breakfast on the first day included we found out it was £22.50 per person for a buffet. Food quality and staff service was variable, great in places,and ok in others, however when they got it right they really did!
Although there is alot negative above, this part of the holiday was still fantastic. The views, the sea, the beach were all fantastic, the weather was beautiful and it was very relaxing. There was a private beach with a snorkelling area which was really great too, however if future customers were looking at this place I would recommend you let them know it is slightly tired as a hotel ( management stated that upgrade work would be carried out in 2013.. but we will see) its more of a 3 or 4 star hotel than a 5, definitely.
Some of the staff are worth mentioning. Jonathan, who was one of the duty managers was on hand to listen to our concerns, and was happy to help us out. Mervin, on the concierge desk was always really helpful and friendly, and deserves commendation. There were also a couple of waiting staff, whose names we cannot remember who were always helpful and smiling.
