Well done to the chef for the excellent food. Quite a good choice of food. A big thanks to Mr. Ivan Drago, food and beverage supervisor for his helpful service. He was very nice and he knows the job well.

We recently stayed a week here as our son got married on Hola Beach which is part of this hotel and a truly magical venue. We can't thank the staff enough for making this a wonderful, 'fairytale' experience. Their attention to detail was amazing & nothing was too much trouble.

Had a ten day holiday to this hotel and my first impressions were that the hotel needed somewhat of an uplift, very clean though I have to say and rooms cleaned beautifully every day by the friendly housekeepers.
