Although only 3 star classification the friendlyness and efficiency of the staff together with the excellent food warrants a higher rating which is probably restricted by the lack of air conditioning in the bedrooms and main reception.

We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel and would recommend it to our family/friends/anyone. Room was cleaned daily. Decor good. Food was abundant and of excellent quality. We found some sun loungers were in need of repair/ replacement but we were told that a programme of updating was in progress. Some improvement of sound insulation in the pool...

Excellent hotel very clean and really friendly staff. Food was good with lots of meat and fish choices but not so much choice for vegetarians (they put ham in most of the salads!). The 3 pools and grounds are fabulous. The rooms are spacious and cleaned spotlessly daily. We stayed over the Easter holiday so the hotel was very busy...

I have just come back from my 8th time at this Hotel and it really is great value for money. It is only a 3 Star Hotel but the food is fantastic, the location spot on, and the Staff are very friendly. The Beach is minutes away and so is the Main Bus Depot where you can Travel over most...

My sister and I have just returned from a fab one week stay at this hotel. The hotel looks daunting on the outside when you first turn up but the interior is lovely as well as the pools. We stayed on all All Inc basis and I can honestly not fault the food at all. The quality of the food...

Just returned from our third visit to this hotel, no doubt we will be back again!! It's perfectly true that the hotel is in need of a bit of a facelift, décor / fittings etc. a bit tired and used, but it is kept spotlessly clean everywhere. The food is of good quality, well cooked, plenty of it, and mostly...

We enjoyed our time in this hotel, we visited as a family of 4. Location is great very near the beach. The highlight of this hotel was the food, absolutely gorgeous. For the price I recommend staying here.

I am currently staying in the ifa continental hotel with my husband and 10 year old son. I have had what I would consider to be an extremely disappointing holiday. Don't get me wrong, all staff are all very pleasant and helpful and the hotel is very clean and comfortable. The hotel boasts 3 swimming pools, great, or so you...

Stayed at this hotel 25 years ago on honeymoon and took my husband back there last week for his 50th birthday present. Hotel changed in colour (not for the better) and outlay - could not remember it at first. Rooms were cleaned everyday with towel changes - food was plentiful and had a variety for all tastes - well presented....
