There was little we could fault about the Karras - it was clean, friendly staff and lovely pool & bar area. As a group of four 18 year olds on a first girly holiday away the hotel was perfect! It wasn't on top of the strip (about a 15min walk away) so was quiet at night, always staff available at whatever time and maid service everyday.
The room itself was basic, we didn't make much use of the minimal kitchen appliances offered apart from the fridge - which was very useful! We booked on a self-catering basis and went to the supermarkets everyday! There are about 3 supermarkets about a 5 min walk away from the hotel with reasonably priced products.
On arrival we had to pay a 25 euro safety deposit each which we was unaware of however upon leaving the hotel you get this back. The hotel is situated in a ideal position if you want to be able to access the strip on a regular basis however do not want to be on top of it! We went to the strip every night for dinner and clubs and had no trouble at all!
The other people at the hotel were groups of teenagers much like ourselves, everyone was friendly and it was a lovely atmosphere with the pool bar blasting out the latest english songs.
One issue we had in our room was we wasnt provided a bath mat therefore everytime we had a shower the floor flooded, however after speaking to reception about 30mins later we were given a mat. One main issue we had was our shower head, the appliance to hold the shower head had broken which made it difficult to shower, we reported to reception and never received any help, we just managed as best as we could, which was annoying!
The hotel is lovely and there is little to fault however the price. We overpaid compared to most people staying in Lagana. We paid around £550-600 for our accommodation, flights and coach transfer, in hindsight we would have definitely choose to stay elsewhere. As a first holiday it was very pleasurable, however the price was too much for what is actually on offer. We have heard positive recommendations about other hotels, so perhaps if we go back we look somewhere else.
