The brochure pictures of the main reception area and pool came to life when we arrived. We had read about the elevated position but we did not expect such steep hill to the Accommodation Blocks. We were designated block 4 and the top floor of three and we found we were not able to get there all in one go! The reception kindly found us a room in block 2 middle floor but we lost the sea view, now looking onto the back of block 1. The staff were all friendly and helpful and very obliging. The hotel was advertised as Adults only but there were quite a lof of children and youngsters staying, there was no entertainment for them apart from the pool. This was good as there was a shallower end and a deep end. there was no entertainment, one night in our seven and the shuttle bus to the town finished running from town at 7.15pm. Taxis were available at 3 to 4 Euros. The climb down to the town and beach area was not suitable for persons not in training for marathons, there was a short cut down a dirt track and there was no lighting. The rooms were very nice in size and decor and were kept well by the room staff. Towels and bed linen changed a couple of times and poolside towels were available. The food at breakfast and dinner had buffet selections and in general one could find something suitable. The Dinner menu cards placed early in the day but did not match the foods at the buffet tables. The dress code stipulated for dinner (to keep up 5 star appearances - a welcome change) was not enforced and smoking at the tables during and between courses was practise to its full advantage - NON SMOKERS TAKE NOTE AND BE WARNED, THERE WAS NO ESCAPE! The meals did not live up to 5 star, we were generous with a 3 star.
