“You get what you pay for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Pros
Clean hotel
Bedrooms spotless
I did not experience any power cuts
Excellent pool area
Good playground
Friendly staff

We payed no more than £300 for bed and breakfast, breakfast is simple and wifi only works in the reception. I have travelled all over Albania and this hotel meets european standards and I would give it a secure 3 stars. If your in Saranda - this is the place to go where you can relax and have a holiday.

We visited at the end of Ramadan and at during the Bajram celebrations so we were restricted in what accommodation was available. This seemed to be the best of what was left, €56 per night per room. Its location is about 3km outside Sarande which turned out to be to our benefit for this time of the year because the main town was crazy busy. The small road leading up to the hotel is nothing more than a gravel dirt road (which was a big part of our route to Albania). Eventually when we arrived very late into the evening we checked in & went to our rooms. I was located on the 5th floor but I was advised the lift wasn’t working for this floor so either go to one up or one below & walk the stairs to my floor...a poor start with luggage however small… We asked about getting some food & thankfully they have a pizza oven located by the pool & they were happy to oblige even thought it was about 23hrs. The WIFI that was supposed to be available in public areas wasn’t available this far from reception, also the breakfast room didn’t support WIFI. The bedrooms were spacious enough and clean but a bit randomly decorated; there was a plastic terrace table & chair in my room to go with the wooden furniture. There was also 3 pairs of worn house shoes, I am aware it is the Balkan culture to wear house shoes but I also don’t want to wear someone else’s very worn shoes. The breakfast was very basic & with coffee served from a juice dispenser & therefore cold. The lifts were intermittently working & very slow but still not to the 5th floor, no matter how fit you are, it is irritating. The pool area was very nice, with plenty of sun loungers for the size of the hotel. We didn’t use the beach but it was a stone beach as opposed to sand. In the evening time there were at least 6 power outages which in turn resulted in waiting about an hour to have a shower and in the end the sower was cold. This was also the experience of my travelling companions so it wasn’t unique to my room. Throughout the stay the one thing we noticed was that the service end of the hotel is staffed by teenage boys with the exception of 2 adults whom I presume are the owners. There is no doubt they were very hard working but they really lack people skills & don’t understand the concept of personal interaction. The female owner was very friendly and pleasant but the male made no attempt to interact even when he watched me stand at the lift for about 3 minutes without telling me they were again out of order. To be honest I wouldn’t visit Albania again because the country as a whole has a long way to come before it should be considered anyone who has a choice of somewhere else to go. In my opinion the roads are randomly dug up, the drivers are dangerous, the country is filthy & people need to start taking personal responsibility before it should be considered

As our first trip to albania, we were very stressed about the conditions that we had to affront. We leeded to this hotel searching with our car for a quiet place to stay, near the town.

The rooms are spacious and very clean,and this is the most important. They had some minor problems but this is not provocating problems with the staying. (and for the most, this are common to the majority of the structures in albania that were constructed in massive quantity the last years).
The best is the sea view from every apartment, that relaxes you during your stay, as also the sunset view.

The most important think is also that the stuff is very helpfull, and the owners are also very very friendly, and helpfull.
Important is also the presence of 2 very nice and big pools, as also of the playground and of the activities room with a ping pong table, biiliard table, dvd with childrens moovies etc.

The place is very quiet, far away from the majority of saranda hotels that are near in the heart of the night life of the town, that can provocate problems due to the unregulated sounds.

The fact is that for this good of relaxing away from nightlife rumor, someone need to have a car or to pay a taxi for the hotel from the center of the city. The other bad thing is that the last 500 meters of the road are not asfaltated.(hapends often in Albania).

The beach is only 30 steps away from the main bilding, partly organised with sunbeds, but is a stone beach that provocates problems when you are walking and particulary when you decide to enter to the sea..Maybe is a little bit worse (reguarding stones) respect the other beaches of sarande and ksamil, but for the rest very quiet and clean.

The breakfast is very basic, but in contrary for the lunch and for the dinner the restaurant is totaly advised and you can count on it. The nights is operating also a pizza restaurant on the garden that is also totaly advised and is strongelly recomanded.

Wifi area is only on the reception, and not in the rooms.

As a result this is a very good hotel for the visit in sarande, clean, quiet, with very helpfull stuff and owners, with a lot of services and we sure come back for the next visit, as it is far over the standards of the other hotels in the city.

Room Tip: Al rooms are seaview, so no distinction to do on...

We were planning to spend a night or 2 at the hotel and finally spent 4. It is the perfect choice if you are looking for a relaxing holiday, especially if you travel with children. It has maybe the best position, out of the chaos of Sranda city but wet close enough by car. Everything you need is offered: a nice and clean room with spectacioular sea view, a restaurant with delicious fresh food and reasonable prices, a huge pool and a children pool, a playground, a nice clean and calm beach at meters distance. The owners are extremely friendly and hospitable, and the hotel personal the same.
We travelled with our 4,5 years old child and she really enjoyed it.
We would like to return next year, thank you for everything.

Fantastic hotel, friendly, clean, great location on the outskirts of Saranda. Comfortable rooms with beautiful views of the sea and the island of Corfu. Large swimming pool with children's pool, a lovely beach located in the bay area with free sun loungers. The hotel runs a very nice family, the staff is helpful and friendly. I highly recommend it!
