This hotel is in a great location, a few minutes walk from a nearly private beach. Has a couple of great pools and grounds. The staff are very good and helpful, and the whole place is spotlessly clean. The only let down was the hotel claimed to have 3 or 4 restaurants, but didn't (some were closed) there was a buffet restaurant which was 25 euro pp per day and the food wasn't good. The only other restaurant was the 'al fresco' which was outside (in the grounds), the food was good but service was slow and a lot of people complained, but shockingly it was closed on the Friday and Saturday for private wedding functions! So a 5 star hotel with no restaurant was a let down and we had to get cabs to other restaurants in the area. Still, a lovely place and would go there again.
