We have just returned from an 11 night stay at the Azur hotel. I was a little concerned on what to expect following some very poor reviews. Our room was very spacious and clean, and although we had to call reception a couple of times as there were no towels this was very quickly dealt with. The hotel itself is really pleasant with well kept gardens and the pool was clean. It was fairly quiet, so we always got a sun lounger on return from the days diving for a quick swim and a sit in the sun. Service at the bar was a bit hit and miss depending on who was working.
The food is nothing special, and the best word I can use is adequate. There was sufficient choice so we could always find something that we liked. Please don't try the wine, which was absolutely undrinkable!
We dived on Aquarius and the crew and dive guides were first class. They were all friendly and helpful and made the diving experience very enjoyable. My only complaint would be on the overcrowding on the boat, and we had in excess of 35 divers on a few days. This meant that you were luckly to get somewhere to sit on the boat (a space to lie down was out of the question!), and there were an awful lot of bubbles under the water.
Overall a really good holiday in a really pleasant and relaxing hotel. I have rated as 'average', but it is nearly 'very good'. I would recommend to divers as a good hotel to stay in.
