im a travel agent in sussex, and i visited this hotel for 7 nts with my partner and our little girl of 2.
the hotel is located in a very quiet area, right on the beach, on the outskirts of kardemana. Ideal for a quiet hotel based break. we very much enjoyed our stay at the hotel, we were lucky to have had an upgrade to a 2 bedroomed suite, wish was lovely, and recently refurbished, very large and spacious,overlooking the quieter pool, with a stunning back drop of mountains behind. I would def recommend the larger rooms,as ideal with children, as you can put them to bed, and still have a bit of an evening, enjoying a drink in the other room.also if your shower , isnt hooked up onto the wall, as ours wasnt, not a problem, tell reception, and a handy man fxes it up, in no time at all.
the complex is very large, 4 swiming pools, infact we didnt know about the 4th pool, until the last day, we spent all our time round the main pool, were the activities take place, as our girl enjoyed the paddling pool there, whilst bobbing away to the music, which i might add isnt on all day, so you do get some peace and quiet, if you want it!
the food is fantastic, very fresh, a great selection at every meal time, the chinese was loveley. The only thing i would say is a shame, is that they only have the 1 restaurant, it would have been nice to have had choice of restaurants to go to, as after a few days, it gets a bit annoying going back to the same place 3 times a day!
Also you have to eat at the set meal times, as they dont serve food anywhere else apart from a help yourself buffet ( which was ok,but not much choice ) .
I think it would be good if they had a section somewhere in the hotel, that serves freshly cooked snacks at any time of day,maybe from around the pool bar.,so then if you wanted to skip lunch, you could then have something when you felt hungry, rather than beeing told when to eat!
The ice cream which you can also help your self too, was lovely, and ideal with little toddlers around
the entertainment was good, i have seen alot better in 3 star hotels, but there were some really good and funny shows. might be nice if they could lay on some entertainers from the outside more, just to make it more varied. the shows are held outside, so do take a cardigan, this time of year, as it got very chilly in the evening, this was probably because it was soo windy! ( all day). but still gorgeous weather in the day time!
my little girl absolutley love the kiddies disco every night from 9 til 9.30, infact we had to ask for a copy of the cd they use, so she could carry on boogie'ing at home. ( which she has).Thanks to the entertainment team for that.
we got the free bus to kardemena, which was nice to have a wander around, and took the mini train back which was only 2 euros, and you get to go along the coast road, which was nice.
overall we had a lovely time, met some really nice people, enjoyed the hotel and would have no problem in recommended this to my customers in the future, and ideal for all age groups.
