This hotel is not big, than it is good... The stuff is friendly... Most guests are Germans but there are other nationalities.
Rooms: well if you take the standard rooms you will get a nice room but with horrible bath (dated 30 years old) and very old air conditioner that does not keep cold if the temperature outside is hot, so I kindly suggest to book a superior room.
The food is very nice... the nicest food I found in hotels.. I talk about the quality and variety... if you stay one week in hotel you need to change taste of food and find something to eat. well, I like the fact that the food is different everyday (of course vegetables are always available) and very nice cakes. On Tue and Thu they organize a special event (i.e. Chinese, Greek, Italian... food) and one time per week you can book the "à la carte restaurant" where you can see the sunset and be served on the table, nice and romantic.
The bar does not offer many drinks and the juices are terrible! but you can drink international spirits with all inclusive.
The beach is nice and quite big, but the water is not so deep and there are stones in the water, so better to have swimming shoes, to go far. But if you walk a bit on the left you will find deeper waters. In any case I saw other hotels near there, with really horrible beach to swim.
The animation team does not have a lot of resources, but they do all the best and organize very nice and funny shows in the evening. go an see!!! :)
Miniclub, well if you have small children and would like to bring to mini disco or to the club during the day, well, do not be confident on it. The girls that take care of it are not so child oriented, and they do not really involve the children. (tip: go to another hotel for the minidisco :)
one more thing, there is a tourist train that pass near the hotel (between the beach and the hotel there is a little street where drivers do not respect the speed limit at all, be careful). the train bring tourists around for 10 EUR for 1,5 hours. (or 1/2 day for EUR...?)
Well, do not take it... it is just the way to fu.k your money. the only thing nice that they show are the beaches that you can see just walking. In 1,5 hour (20 minutes beaches and all the rest horrible dirty streets in the countryside, with garbage and abandoned cars) so I recommend to avoid to be fuc..d :)
