I have been staying here for 3 times now - last stay was in Jan 2013.
The first 2 times I found the place ok especially since you could walk down the beach and find more "local" restaurants right on the beach. You still can but there has also been built more in between and the beach is getting more and more busy.
The hotel food is still the same. The breakfast is not really inspiring and a la carte is not only expensive but also not very good. We ate there once because my son was really tired snd they forgot parts of our order on top of the fact that the food was not very good.
They have turned the resort into a non smoking resort which also means you are not allowed to smoke in their restaurant on the beach! I am fine with smoking restrictions but when you are no longer allowed to smoke outside is becomes stupid in my POV. So if you want to smoke you can do that on your terrace or on the beach.
They also seem to have signed a deal with a Russian package tour company. At least 80% of the guests where Russians. I do not have anything against Russians but when a resort gets dominated by any nationality is changes character.
The bungslows begin to be worn put. They are still ok but not luxury in any way. The beds have seen better days and were for me a bit hard and "bumpy".
They still have too few sunbeds and chairs so it is the usual "put the towel first" game every morning.
My 8 year old son really enjoyed the stay as there were several Danish children he could play with as well as the fire show on the beach.
But for me this was the last visit. I do not like when restrictions become irrelevant and foolish - and I also prefer places with mixed nationalities to make it all a bit more interesting.
