We stayed in the hotel for one week, and besides dinner we have no remarks. The room was big and beautiful, every day well cleaned. We even had a jacuzzi without asking and with no extra cost! Personnel is friendly, swimming pool is big and there are enough seats at the pool or in the garden. There is indeed a motorway just in front of the hotel, but it did not bother us (only some background noise). The main problem is dinner... Our travel agent (Jetair) only offered half board, so we were obliged to have dinner in the hotel's restaurant every evening, but I would definitely advise tourists against doing that!!!!! Unfriendly service and really bad food! The first course was every evening the same, pasta with tomato sauce (no spices, no vegetables).... The main dish was every evening meat (3 times beef), very greasy and salty! The so called mixed vegetables were some leafs of lettuce and a minuscule piece of tomato... When you wanted chips or potatoes, you had to pay 3.5€ extra for a very small amount (which was cold most of the times). One evening there was schnitzel which was still frozen!! Dessert was a very very small piece of cake, which was 3 of the 7 times still frozen... Wines are expensive for such a poor quality restaurant (14€ is the cheapest) and white wines were most of the times not cooled... So to conclude, I can say that the hotel is ok but please just book B&B and go eating elsewhere in the evening!
