“Nice familiy holiday”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Overall a nice 8 day holiday stay which reach our expectations. Very polite service. Have to mention Cristian as very service minded at the nice beach and pool. And always with a smile. Thanks for that:-). A good place for family with teens.
Would be happy to stay here again.

My wife and I and two friends stayed for two weeks at the end of June / beginning of July. All the facilities at this hotel were very good - it is small, clean, food good and varied, plentiful supply of drinks, even served to us on the beach which adjoins the hotel. The thing that makes this hotel outstanding is the staff - they really go the "extra mile" to make you feel a valued customer. For example one day the local bus did not turn up, the hotel reception staff told the assistant manager who promptly took his car out, took us to the main road bus stop, so we could make up some of the lost time and still enjoy our day. He did this without being asked. The restaurant and bar staff were also exceptional and went out of their way to make our holiday one to be remembered. This is the third time my wife and I have stayed at this hotel and each time we have left saying we would definately return. The evening entertainment provided by the animation team was unfortunately very amateurish - the only negative point. If you want a quiet, relaxing holiday, in a friendly environment, on an island with plenty to see and do, with good public transport, lots of sun and a nice cooling sea breeze, then this hotel is as good as it gets! Sincere thanks to the management and staff and we hope to see them again soon.

The hotel was nice, its situated near the sea, but there is not much going on around the complex itself.
The staff at the reception were so nice and very polite and helpfull to start with.
All-inclusive was oké, but not to much choice in drinks, no international brands. The bars were under staffed in my opinion, and most of the people working there were trainees mostly from east europeon origin. You have to pay a supplement for cappucino, orange jus (1,00 euro at breakfast, 3,50 euro at the beach bar??) and so on,
It’s totally orientated for the france, the whole animation team is france and speaks not that well englisch, we are from the netherlands and we also were the only one from the netherlands.
The extra restaurants "olive tree" "sushi bar" as well as the discotheque weren’t open, so don’t count on that.
We were with a group of 4 adults and four children, age 16,17,18 and 19, for those ages there is not much to do on the premasis.
At the terras at evening they had only one choice in music and that was Shakira, over and over and over again, wich can drive people crazy and away, at least we did, we went further down the road to the bar, Mylos Beach, it was very nice there and the cocktails great!.
overall, we had a nice stay, but there are some points for inprovement, but nothing to really complain abouth.
Special notification for Christiaan, who served the drinks at the beach and the pool, a really nice guy and I never met such a hard working, every day smiling and polite employee at any hotel we’ve been!
Also its a very clean complex and the hotelroom is perfect and very clean also.
You can go there and have a really good time!

We are a couple who came back from this hotel very pleased.
The food was good.The tea offered did not have a cafeine free option and many people complained about that.
In the evenings the entertainment for couples (I mean ballroom dancing) was very short and not very profesional.
The staff at the reception was very good. I specially mention Marina,Alina, and Constantin which were vey knowlelegable and very helpful.
The staff in the restaurant was also very nice and helpfull.
All in all we had a pleasant experience.
Just a little improvement in the above mentionened issues and we will be happy to come again.

Stayed there for 7 days beginning of July, booked as last minute with FTI .
Good : clean and not so big hotel, sunbeds available at pool without problems, nice Beach and see very clean. Staff polite mainly composed of young russians or polish students; towels available; good and airconditioned restaurant, suffient rooms and nice green enviroment
To improve: bottle of water in rooms daily would be good and not costly for the hotel of this category; choice of tv programs shall be extended to give tv in rooms some sense; indoor facility being out or order (why?); Beach bar should serve more then local wine. Charging 3eur per day for room-Safe looks to be annoying rather than logic.
Overall: pleasant hotel very relaxed focused on cost control which however is sometimes vissible more then needed. Food standart all inclusive maybe a bit above an average. Drinks also standart, at pool and Beach server in small plastics which is owfull however likely must for safety reasons (there are many russians who can drink vodka like it was water and than cannot control themselves).
We would rate it at 4stars with some reservations. On the other hand paying less then 800 per person per week all in incl. Travel equals to what you get there. In case you really are after five star you need to pay 400 more.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with sea view

nice hotel, staff was ok, rooms were ok, very clean, but the food and drinks were terrible. they have low quality drinks, even the coffee was bad. i had to buy coffee every day from the hotel bar as the one included in the all inclusive program was very bad. except that it was a nice vacation but not a 5 star hotel .
