Hotel itself is located some few hundred meters from the beach, however, sea views are between other hotels since they are positioned directly in front of Diamanté beach, so don't expect a clear view across the sea. Request a room overlooking the pool, otherwise you'll have a view of waste ground behind the hotel. This is a reasonable hotel, boasting three outdoor pools, sun lounging area, private parking (although plenty of spaces on the street, so no need to pay). There is no indoor pool belonging to the hotel, its a spa (located in the hotel basement level) reserved by an outsourced company and costs 20euros per visit to use the hydro pool, etc. should you wish an indoor pool, you can use their sister hotel (Esmeralda) which is located directly on the beach. Breakfast is in the usual buffet format as is lunch and dinner, however, don't expect a change in the menu since having checked the last three days its all been the same proposal; chips, potatoes, pizza, pasta, cakes, selection of cold meats, liver, pork, etc. doesn't really invite you with some Mediterranean style dishes or something beyond what you imagine an 'all-inclusive Turkish resort geared for the Russians to offer'. For a 4star hotel, I'd have expected more selection, greater variation, and especially if you're one of those families paying for an all-inclusive package, you'd want value for your money. I only took the breakfast as part of the room booking, and there are plenty of eateries nearby in the town centre which are very good. Additionally, at breakfast you'll only be allowed to sit at specific tables as some are prepared for lunch, despite all meal times being served in the same location, same tables and are setup in the same way. This was annoying when you've already decided where to sit and put your plate down, then to be told to move. Sound proofing wasn't something factored into this hotel, you can easily hear the rooms above and beside you, plus anything going on outside in the corriodor, I wouldn't choose this hotel if I had children as I'd be concerned they'd be easily woken during the late evening/early morning. All that said, staff were friendly, rooms are of a good size, clean and you're a short stroll from the beach area... Lastly, if you get the opportunity, try eating at the hotels upmarket restaurant known as 'La Scala' its pricey, but the service is exceptional and quality of food was great...
