We arrived late approx' 1am. The reception staff were excellent, one even apologised for his lack of English, which in fact was very good. We were shown to our room (1010) on the ground floor. It turned out to be a suite. The restaurant was still open, we had a quick snack then went to the pool bar, open 24/7. After half an hour a chef appeared with a fabulous platter of water melon carved into a heart surrounded by a variety of fresh fruits. Great start! It continued throughout the stay. No kids under 16 made this a very relaxing break. Our room had 4 balconies giving panoramic views overlooking the sea. There are 2 pools, a Jacuzzi, tennis and a mini golf course. A lovely private beach, with restaurant and bar. They were constructing a pier, which may now be complete. The food was great, the fussy will always complain but we found plenty to satisfy us. The hotel is geared to German and Russian guests, most of the staff speak those languages better than English but with a bit of perseverance, gestures and a smile you can make yourself understood. We had no problems at all. The pictures on the web site are spot on, what you see is what you get. We had a fantastic, peaceful break. Did not have to queue for anything, got a sun bed every day, without getting up with the Lark. The hotel was spotless. If there is a down side, construction of neighbouring sites is on going. I never heard a single machine or hammer. There is a very steep hill leading up to the reception but a free bus is available almost on demand, to take you up or down. On reading some of the other reviews, I'm not sure we were in the same hotel. We had a problem with the return transfer. The company had mistakenly booked us in a day early. I explained this to the reception guys, who made the appropriate phone calls. Between us we got it sorted without any fuss. They were very helpful. Overall this has to be one of the best holidays I've had. Fantastic value, so relaxing, wouldn't hesitate to book again.
