This was recommended to us by a travel agent who told us she had stayed there herself! We wanted a nice all inclusive hotel where we could relax in the day and then get dressed up at night for a nice meal! However when we arrived we were shocked to find a note on the front door giving us directions...

The hotel staff were friendly and it is a nice family run hotel. however that is also its downfall the all inclusive option is a bit if a joke 3 drinks included limited food esp as a vegetarian. But if you just want a nice room to stay in great atmosphere then this is the hotel for you the rooms...

On arrival I was shocked. The hotel was located on a very busy road. It was in a sorry state. The gardens are just dirt with the odd alive plant. Our apartment was up a steep flight of stairs, we had a two bedroom apartment and it was very basic. The rooms to do not tv and they do not...

We had a two week holiday and were a bit worried by other reviews. We were pleasantly surprised, the apartment was really good and more than adequate for our needs (room 102), the food was hot, served on time, had all the necessary balanced meal qualities. I am a vegetarian and sometimes find it difficult, but I had three good...

I'm going to be as fair as I possibly can because the staff are friendly and it served our needs, in fact I'm by the pool as I write this with a cold drink in my hand. Stalis the resort is purely a tourist resort, so don't expect beautiful unspoilt coastland with lovely white painted rustic buildings and a small...

Food is limited, no choice. Chicken nuggets aren't actually chicken I think it's rat or horse. You are only allowed beer or wine in your all inclusive, which we thought we were allowed vodka. Rooms are filthy, floor wasn't swept for our arrival. You have to hold the shower head to have a shower, and when washing hair or body...

I know we bought a cheap holiday, but sub terranean rooms, cockroaches on my bed, loose taps, loose toilet seats, wobbly shower, but the worst thing in the room was the night I came back in, and there in the corner of the shower/toilet room was a large turd. I can only assume it came up the toilet, because it...
