Great food, changes every day. Restaurant works perfect - stuff is managing it very quickly. Room was good - clean, large, bed is very large but a little bit tough. There is a clothes dryer on the balcony. Hotel is located just on the beach, although a little bit far from the city. Almost every day there is some animation... More

To begin with the pool was very crowded, freezing water, and there weren't enough seats and tables for everyone which is ridiculous. The service for a drink at night took ages, so you had to get it yourself. We had ants in our room from day one without having eaten nor had food products. The food was good, there was... More

I spoke to the hotel 'quality assurance manager' within 12 hours of booking in and begged them to let me leave- they refused to cancel my next 7 days and took no responsibility for this shocking hotel and service. 'We'll get back to you' on 24th, four days later NOTHING. What can I say in such a small space? -... More

My category for this hotel would only be 3*. yes there were plenty of activities but very third rate and anything in the spa was expensive. room was very good with plenty of space but rather outdated. the food was cold at all meals although there was a good selection.

the room itself is okay. bed is standard for this class, everything else is outdated or seems to have been renewed with minimal effort. age old mini-tv, rattling air-con, empty mini-bar, bath tub chipped and takes ages to fill up with halfway warm (never hot) water. crowning this is the worst breakfast i ever had in any hotel (except a...

The hotel was great, spacious bedroom with two double beds, and great balcony overlooking the front of the hotel and the sea. The food was not good, all very luke warm, and you had to clear away your dirty plates yourself, not good for 4 Star! I used the spa for a massage which was good. It was a long... More

Many thanks for your comments. However, we want to clarify that the exposed meal in our Buffet arrives until recommended sanitary temperature, but could not be heated more without incurring resection of food. We understand that sometimes some of our guests prefere more heated dishes, and thats why we always offer an additional possibility to warm up extra their plates... More

Hopeless access, check in took 40mins as like everything at the hotel the IT probably dates from 1980. Room furnishings non-existant apart from a delightful retro TV. Everything is depressing, lowest quality and high price - the welcome drink for example turns out to be a 4Euro Mojito reduced from 6Euro - so no thanks. Theres a not bad restaurant... More

Chaos on lifts and breakfast and the pool simply cannot accomodate all hosts. Rooms are clean, AC worked, personnel is polite, but breakfast have no choice, the 5 lifts simply cannot handle the number of people per floor. Although it is far from the city center (4 kms), you have to park in the hotel.

The rooms were adequate and clean buts thats the only real compliment I can give. Breakfast was terrible. The hot food was cold and the cold food was stale. The swimming pool area is inadequate for a hotel of this size. With 400+ rooms and therefore a potential of over 800 guests, 135 sun beds are just never going to... More
