Buses also are close by to get around, this is a very quiet resort so if... More

Well where do I start? The hotel was sold to me as a 5 star, it's actually rated as a four star but in reality it's more like a two star. The hotel is tired the furniture is tired and the poor staff are tired and most of the visitors looked tired, in other words it was like a run... More

The location is superb. The pool area, reception, toilets etc were lovely and spotlessly clean. Corridors and rooms although clean were a bit dated and tired. Staff were really good: polite, attentive and helpful, especially the Scottish lady in reception. Food in the restaurant was hit or miss, but we found the meals in the Chinese restaurant to be very... More

From your comments I can see that you were not satisfied in full with the service you had received right throughout the whole holiday. Serious acquisitions, funny remarks, and lots of sarcasm ....
