We had a lovely meal to greet us in our room after a typically late arrival from Bristol. Our room was first class, all the staff were extremely friendly and the food was of the very best quality. There was plenty of space for sun beds and sufficient beach for those like myself that prefer swimming in the sea. The... More

I have enjoyed my stay very much. Ideal for people who are looking for a quiet holiday. The hotel is very nice, the surroundings are beautiful. The room was spacious and very clean. Only the water temperature in the shower was difficult to arrange. The service was excellent (especially Sofia in the restaurant). Nice and large selection of food. I... More

We waited ages for the menu despite it being not busy. The server wasn't friendly and looked like he was forced on the job. The quality of the... More

We were looking forward to this 3 nights stay in a sea view room booked well in advance through an hotel rooms website (July for staying 1-4 September). Checking in we got room 171 - ground floor. Upon entering the room we realized there was no sea view whatsoever: the room was directly in front of the pool/bar/dining area (see... More

In one word: thank you for making our holiday perfect. W reached quite drained and were really in need of peace, warmth and total relaxation. This hotel is beautifully located, surrounded by sea. It has a couple of swimming pools and has beautifully placed little hide aways on rocks where one is able to relax. Because kids are not allowed,... More

This hotel's accommodations are gorgeous. The entire hotel and its landscape. The many outdoor areas,the quiet secluded beach, the wonderful hotel photographer, Melina, and the friendly-staff made this trip a favorite for us! The staff is very friendly, but I cannot say enough about Melina, the photographer, who was soo easy to work with. She had great ideas, very artistic... More
