A nice place to relax and spend a few days. Good place for family. I stayed with my brother and parents for four days and had a blast. We got massages and spent a day scuba diving. The food is OK. Some things are fantastic, others have no flavour. I seemed to live on cakes! There are three restaurants to try for free. The seafood one was terrible but the Italian and Lebanese were fantastic. The only real negative is the pools are so cold. They look so nice but I couldn't stand the cold!
Most of the guests were Russians so I guess they don't mind so much! We went to the disco and bar in the evenings and everyone made sure to include us, even though most things are in Russian.
The staff are wonderful, most can speak English or at least can find someone who can. The rooms are beautiful and kept clean everyday.
I would definitely recommend stays of up to a week. You'll be sick of the food by then!
