Stayed here all inclusive last week in October 2012. The hotel was preparing to close down so was not overly busy but many guests appeared to have been given free upgrades from other hotels in the area to allow them to close.
Hotel is very nice but certainly not 5 star as promoted. Buffet meals were "all right" but a bit repetitive, excellent if you like hamburgers or grilled chicken. Was a bit disappointed by the buffet overall. There are also 2 specialty restaurants, 1 Chinese and 1 Italian which were free but you had to book, but where good as they broke the monotony of the buffet.
We stayed in one of the deluxe rooms which was spacious, had a sea view and was very nice.
3 main pools in the complex, 1 indoor which was heated and 2 outdoor which were not so quite cold when we were there. They are also both salt water so be aware of that.
My biggest gripe was "the all inclusive package" as there was a seperate all inclusive guest bar but the drinks were all local brands and limited in choice whereas the pay bar had all the usual brands available and a much bigger choice. Guests I presume were not supposed to take drinks from one to another but many did.
Not much in the way of live entertainment, 1 night of greek dancing and a guy with his electric organ most other nights alternating between the 2 bar areas.
I have stayed all inclusive a good number of times in other hotels and have never before experienced the real difference in the quality of drinks served before. Also the hotel was quite quiet but still had large queues at times at the all inclusive bar, god knows what it would be like when the hotel is full.
Excellent location for the town, 15 minute stroll into the old town area, 10 minutes to new town shops and restaurants.
