Okay hotel. Food average for the price could expect anything more. Don't come to late in the sumer because we came on the 24th September and everything was closing. But Peter the pool barman made our holiday he was good company.

The location of the hotel is very good, Wi-fi is strong and the rooms are fine. Nice pools, sauna and steam bath! But the staff is not trained and maybe missing their first seven years as they don't know how to say "Hello", "Good bye", "May I take your plate?", etc. In the restaurant you should look for your plate...

Good location for reaching the beach, but bad location, because nearby hotels are very noisy. Very, very, very bad wi-fi in the room, average wifi in reception and near pool. Very, very, very bad working lifts. Very sad staff, especially in restaurant and abnormal staff in reception. We have ordered room with sea view, but we get a room with... More

The Food wasn't the best, but you aren't in golden sands to eat. The Barkeeper(Poolbar) has a very nice bird and he looks very rich with his gold chain. He is a very nice guy (nohomo). If i come back the this Hotel, it's because of Peter an the bird.

Hotel overall was somewhat dull, the rooms were OK, however, the breakfast and evening meals were just awful. In fact the evening meals were so poor that despite having paid for half board, we ate out 5 nights out of 7. At breakfast they would run out of bread rolls by 9am!!!!
