Arrived at 10 o/c the restaurant was closed so was given some "sandwiches" well some bread with a slice of ham & cheese in, not very edible. We had a lovely big room with a massive balcony. The views from our room were magnificent. On a downside there was 121 steps from our room to the pool area which were... More

The hotel is good, but not excelent, and it is surely not 5* hotel. The furniture is old, the bathroom is small and ugly, room service is low qualified. My wife was shocked by the lack of slippers and there was only one towel per person. Food is tasty, but only until you rent a car and drive to any... More
