Reviewed April 10, 2014

Visited first week in March as a pair of couples in our early 60s. Really impressed with this modern comfortable hotel, very clean and with very helpful reception staff. We were just B & B and the breakfasts were very good with a good choice each morning and all in all considering the price we paid for our holiday, we had excellent value for money !

It would be difficult to say a bad word about this hotel. Everything was really good from the friendliness of the staff to the quality of the food and the comfort of the rooms.
I was particularly pleased that small items that some hotels charge for, were free here, e.g. wifi, room safe, freshly squeezed orange juice at breakfast.

This hotel was one of the nicest i have stayed in. The decor is really 4* and the surroundings are breath taking. Only problems we had were with staff being unfriendly and slightly rude. Not all staff some were lovely but the odd few had an attitude problem. The food left much to be desired; we ate breakfast each morning as it was included in the price but only ate our evening meal once. There are much nicer places around to eat, don't waste your money. We ate at a place called Rania's most of the time we were there. Sometimes twice in one day! Highly recommend the steak there.

Room Tip: View of the broccoli trees is a must

I spent 3 nights at this hotel a week ago in a sea view room and was very happy with everything. The room and bathroom were very clean and the bed was comfortable. Its a pleasure to find a hotel room where everything works!. Reception was very helpful (with a smile). I ate in the restaurant for the evening meal, quick service, tasty and well presented, once again served with a smile. Breakfast was more than sufficient. I had a nice massage one evening (5th floor).

I will certainly return when I have more time.

We stayed for a week with a view of the building opposite, although this wouldn't usually bother me, the hotel didn't seem that full so was expecting a change to a room with a sea view. The room itself was fine, it was comfy and had everything you would need. The tea and coffee making facilities were nothing to shout about, only 2 tea bags, 2 sachets of coffee,2 sugar and 2 milk. The breakfast was OK but the evening meals were utter rubbish and far too expensive, especially when you can walk 2 minutes to the Main Street and eat 5 star food for less money. The hotel was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. If the food were better I would have no hesitation going back to stay again.

Room Tip: When booking ask for a room with a sea view

We stayed for four nights in a superior side sea view room. The room was very comfortable with all the facilities/amenities you would expect to find in a four-star hotel. The wifi connection was pretty awful; kept dropping out, though it seemed to work better in the public areas than in our room.
In general ,the hotel was very clean and well presented. The design and decor is modern - and quite funky! All of the reception and restaurant staff we encountered spoke excellent English (put us to shame) and all were polite, friendly and helpful.
We also enjoyed two dinners in the hotel restaurant - both were really very good and the service was excellent.
Our only significant criticism is the coffee at breakfast. It was truly horrid. However this was more than made up for with the excellent coffee we ordered in the lounge.
