“Terrible beach”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

If you like italiens, all inclusive and bathing in the pool this is the perfect hotel!
But for us it was terrible, the hotel was ok but we don`t travel around half the world to check in to a hotel were you can`t use the beach.

At low water u had to walk several hundred meters to get out and the beach was just mud at that time! At high water all kind of garbage came in...

We had booked through Expedia and received a confirmation. Due to stay in the hotel 10th July. Fortunately for us we were staying in a nearby resort for the first week and had the opportunity to check it out first. We were astonished to find the hotel CLOSED, pools all grubby and work being carried out. Expedia tried to relocate us to another Ora resort, but were unable to obtain a response from any of them by telephone, so I am guessing they were all closed too.
My advise - ring the hotel to check its open BEFORE BOOKING.

Thanks to Angelo and his wonderful staff for making my holiday so special. I had a wonderful rest and felt very at home. Nothing was too much trouble for these people and I would love to go back soon. Keep up the good work Angelo!

Stayed with my husband for ten days and had a perfect holiday_ the staff was very friendly and took care of all our needs. The manager, Mr. Balbi was on hand to help us in every way conceivable! I highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking to escape and relax in paradise.. The food was excellent as well as entertainment during dinner!
