Very good hotel .Friendly efficient staff. Very clean. Lovely comfortable beds bedding and towels. The food could have been hotter and there was always a crowd around the coffee machines at breakfast. From a personal point of view I would have liked some chairs in the swimming pool area..

The rooms/apartments are of decent size, clean, comfortable and well equipped (with a full kitchenette, which would seem OTT for an all inclusive resort). Each room has a balcony and full south facing sea view. An unexpected bonus for us was that the hotel completed the... More
