My husband and I stayed with our 12 year old son in a suite, for one week. We travelled here with Thomsons and were v impressed with the process. Our room was a good size, with a separate area for our son and a separate dressing area too. The bedroom decor is very bland. The hotel itself is enormous and... More

Stayed for a week in July 2016, weather as expected and brilliant. The hotel itself is something truly special. Not your average Thomson/Thomas Cook location. The whole hotel is finished to the highest standard and the service matches. Nothing is too much, if you do not like the mattress, pillow, deck hair etc anything will be changed for you with...

I can't recommend this hotel enough! It is a beautiful seaside hotel with many amenities and wonderfully helpful and attentive staff! Rooms are lovely and spacious, breakfast is great. We ate in 5 different hotel restaurants and the food and service was good in all of them. The only minus was the weather (very windy!) so try to check that... More

We had a sea view suite, 251. It was located on the first floor (2). Room and bathroom were very good sized. It had a lovely sea view but keep in mind that these rooms are above the rooms with private pools so you can also see people sun bathing or on their pools. Breakfast buffet was very good with...

Lets just start off by saying that the Ayurvedic spa team from India is probably one of the best things to do here besides the beach and buffet. Shirodara, hot oil massage and Indian head massage was the highlight of my days. They also have outdoor massage overlooking the beach. The gym is beautiful and a great place to go... More

The territory of the hotel is not big but beautiful. Every evening there is life music in the bar or show at the amphitheater. I would recommend to choose sea view rooms. We have stayed in June and were lucky with the weather. The beach is not big and during last days of our stay it was pretty overcrowded. Most... More
