Excellent hotel with nudist facilities. There is a big nudist balcony, on the roof of the building and we loved it. Also the nudist roof/solarium gives excellent views of dunes, ocean etc. Food at the hotel is excellent too, especially evening time. Staff, especially waiters are really helpful and friendly.

I am strongly disappointed about the hotel. There were many small signs revealing that the hotel does not care about the guests comfort. For example, the internet network was not protected for 7 days and became free for all guests but If you paid in advance you could not expect a refund of money. The hotel should be definitely renovated,... More

We were really looking forward to our stay his summer. The reviews were good and we were hoping for a relaxing break with our kids. Firstly, I cannot fault the staff. They were friendly and helpful. We had a good-sized room, plenty big enough to a family of 4, and it was cleaned to a good standard daily. They gave... More

Stayed here for a week at the end of August with two adults and three children. We had requested an interconnecting room but unfortunately none were available due to them being very limited, we were however given rooms next door but one to one. I had requested low floor due to having two, two year olds and this had been... More

From the moment we arrived,we were greeted by a happy smiling male receptionist,which made the ten hours of travelling, to the hotel,a pleasant way to start our holiday. He quickly checked us in,and then began to tell us how the door key codes worked and how we used them,particularly at the restaurant. We arrived at the hotel at two o'clock... More
