Have just returned from a week at this lovely hotel and am missing it already.
Check in with a refreshing cold drink was efficient and I was fortunate enough to have a room upgrade to a suite room 4101 with pool and sea view due to the hotel hosting a large and very noisy group of Belgians from TV Ooost. More on this later.
Rooms were very clean and had a fridge but no tea/ coffee facilities so some may wish to take their own. The beds were very comfortable. The adjustable shower is over the bath with a fixed glass screen door and support handles to assist entry. The only toiletries were soap and tissues.
The restaurant had two dinner sittings starting at 6.30 pm. Breakfast started at 7.30. The food was varied and the desserts and breakfast pastries in particular deserve a special mention. There were always soups, a different pasta, pizza, meat and fish dishes, plenty of salads, cold meats, cheeses, fresh fruits and three different ice creams. The tables were cleared promptly. Drinks were freely available but only very small glasses were provided so this meant several trips to quench a thirst. There is also an Asian and a Tunisian restaurant and the barbecue restaurant near the pool.
The main pool was large and very clean with plenty of sun beds and shades. The main problem here was that they were reserved as early as 4 am by the extremely loud and ill mannered TV Ooost Belgians who then left the beds empty and in some cases didn't use them until the afternoon. There were over 400 Belgians who dominated the hotel in general, bringing their own very loud entertainment and cameras with them. Fortunately they choose a different venue each year so this dreadful group should not affect your holiday!
There is free wifi in the lounge area but if there are several users online it may not always connect immediately. I tried to download a newspaper but gave up after 20 mins.
There is a very good spa and indoor pool area on the lower level and lovely gardens surround the hotel right down to its own beach. I saw no mosquitoes and fewer flies than in England.
The staff here were very friendly and welcoming without exception and are a credit to their manager. I shall certainly be returning to this lovely hotel.
