Our first impressions of the hotel was good. Went to check in, paid our tourist tax for 2 adults which was €10. 40. You don't pay for children under 16. We were then told on arrival we were in the other side of the hotel and would be given our key etc from the other reception. We were given instructions... More

Had the best holiday. Food is like any other foreign food, staff helpful, hotel extremely clean. Lots of different nationalities, but friendly enough. Can't grumble at all. Near to the beach and good restaurants if eating out. Linda's is a great one for tea and Robin Hood for breakfast! Lifeguards are strict around the pool, which also means no inflatables.... More

Upon arrival. Good looking hotel. Very clean inside. Rooms were small but clean. Right next to nightclub which closes at 6am!! Don't expect a lot of sleep. Went half board. Don't bother we ate breakfast and dinner once in hotel. Food was horrendous! Hotel however in good location and 5/10minute walk from beach.

Yes this hotel is full of international people but that didn't bother us. Upon arrival, hotel was nice and clean from outside, check in was... More
