Just back from a two week stay at this hotel. Couple of hitches at start of holiday. When we got there at 6pm our room was not available until the following day. We had booked an apartment with two rooms (interconnecting door) but were given a room with a six foot bed and a sofa bed for the night. The room was good but we could not relax and unpack. The following day we were shown the room we were supposed to be in and were really pleased with it. A really large room with a six foot bed and a double and single sofa bed (sofa beds not very comfy). The room was huge. Then there was another large room with a six foot bed. There were two bathrooms, one in each room with plenty hot water. More than enough space for 2 adults, and 3 teenagers. We also had a south facing balcony that overlooked the 2 pools. The pools were immaculate and a lifeguard was there all the time. There is a small bar beside the pool and a snack bar selling pizza and kebab. £1.25 for a large slice of pizza and £2.50 for a chicken kebab. There are 3 supermarkets within 100 yards of the hotel. The beach is a very slow 10 minute walk and there is also a huge promenade with shops and restaurants there too. We were half board and the breakfast consisted of the usual continental type food, cheese, ham, salad, bread rolls, sliced bread that you could also toast. A variety of eggs, hard boiled/poached, scrambled, baked beans, pasta, hot dog sausages etc. Evening meals were varied and consisted of fish, chicken, pork in different sauces, rice, salad, sausage etc. One night a week usually Thursday were pizzas. Desserts were mainly fruit or ice cream. Nothing fancy but definately edible without an upset tummy. Coffee and tea available at breakfast and you need to buy your drinks for the evening meal but they do not rip you off too much a decent bottle of wine will cost about £10. Sunbeds are always available up to around 9am - 10am so no need to rise early to reserve them. A lot of nationalities use the hotel but everyone was fine. No entertainment in the hotel which is great if you just want a relaxing holiday. There is a night club about 200 yards away but never heard a single noise from it. Beer costs about £1.50 a pint and some bars offer it for 50p a pint in happy hour. Loads of activities on the beach. Hire of 2 sunbeds and a parasol on the beach is about £11 per day. Family of 5 ate out one lunchtime. All had pizza/pasta in a beachfront bar with drinks and ice cream for kids for £25. Only downside to the hotel for us was that when we switched rooms the bell boy took our cases to the new room. Unfortunately he dropped the case with my laptop in it and it broke the screen. The hotel would not pay for the repair as their insurance does not cover damages. ~We were offered the safe free of charge for the whole of our stay due to the inconvenience of our room not being available when we arrived. The staff were always polite and helpful. This is a true and accurate report of this hotel and the negative comments can only be from a reflective image of the complainer. Rooms were cleaned every day and towels were changed when you left them on the floor. Bedding changed a couple of times a week. All in all the rooms were spotless.
