Booked 4 night stay with Jet 2 holidays. Had a fantastic time, hotel spotlessly clean, superb food, pool area amazing, no rush for sunbeds. Only negatives were the apartment we were in was shabby and needed decorating and the evening entertainment was poor. Not much going on outside the hotel but it's almost the end of the season, took a... More

The hotel is beautiful and absolutely spotless, the pool area is clean and well maintained and we had no problem getting a sunbed. The staff were all really friendly and the entertainment staff worked really hard with lots of different activities during the day. Staff bought smoothies,... More

We have just returned from a 10 night stay here. The hotel is beautiful. We had a lovely one bedroom apartment and was pleasantly surprised at the spacious living area and kitchen. Also the bathroom had lots of complimentary toiletries. We didn't have a problem getting sun beds and the lifeguards would remove towels from beds when they weren't being... More

We were all inclusive guests at this hotel and it certainly wasn't worth it. When asking the reception staff about the facilities they weren't aware of what went on in the hotel. The food was repeated every day, with very few vegetarian options and not labelled accurately, it was hard to find a table when we went to eat since... More
