It was a lovely stay. From the beginning, the service and communication weren't really good as what I would expect from 5* hotel. This hotel is really more for families with a 1-week stay and all-inclusive, but thanks to the management we got a good care in the end. Lovely rooms, clean and so many options of the restaurants with every evening program :) But Spa horrible !! The receptionist men, service bad, not really clean only the massage therapist very good. I would say is not spa just a salon with message offer. Not really good and not a spa of 5* hotel !! I was very disappointed, hotel should take care more about it !!

Hotel's Favorite
We spent Christmas at the Fanar Hotel and, although sceptical at first about all all inclusive, we were pleasantly surprised. The layout of the hotel is beautiful, the rooms nicely furnished and very clean. Food was delicious and beverages were plentiful. One of their restaurants, the Aubergine, was one of our favourites for breakfast and evening meals. Made to order, tasty and served by friendly waiters. The hotel had a beautiful long beach with sun loungers and umbrellas already in place. Even had frequent sunglasses cleaning service on the beach by one of the staff. This hotel is highly recommended for the beautiful location and it’s excellent food. An ideal place to enjoy and relax. We hope to go there again.

In march was our fifth visit to Fanar hotel and the next trip is already booked. This should speak volumes. For us and our friends this is the place to be, hands down. With each visit we enjoy it even more, the staff, restaurants and all facilities. Although the travel time from Europe is somewhat long, we know that when we get to Fanar all will be perfect. We have traveled to many places around the globe but never enjoyed them as much as this place. And, by the construction works around the property, it looks like it will only get better in the future. One minus for us this time around, our vacation was cut back to a week because of the coronavirus world crisis. We are sure to make it up during next visit. Many thanks to the top professional hotel management and the always smiling and courteous staff.
