Recently returned from Crystal Palace in Skala. We spent one week and can highly recommend this hotel. Spacious and clean accommodation with lovely sea view balcony. Fair sized pool, ideal for families or to swim lengths - not too deep for our kids of 8 & 11. Weather was very hot - stunning. Credit to the staff who worked tirelessly...

Room 307 quite a trek to get there from the bottom so if you have walking problems not advisable but I am sure there were lower rooms with lovely views but ours was stunning.Air con was a...

My sister and I stayed at these studios for 1 week in July. Our room was above the bar area overlooking the pool, sea and undergrowth next door down which there was a nightly parade of goats. I think we had one of the best rooms with regards balacony as we had no trouble getting the wifi. It would appear...

We had a 3rd floor room with excellent sea views, air con extra but needed. Free wifi available but only works around pool area. Just 10 minutes walk away down the bamboo...

Loved these apartments. As mentioned by others the place is immaculately clean. We were there with our 17 yr old son who made friends on the first day which was great & meant we had an even more chilled holiday as he was having fun with his friends all day. The thing I loved about this place is you could...

Stayed here for two weeks in July but one week is enough. Seems to be Thomsons or TUI as there now known by guests only. Would say that most of the guests are regulars that go back each year. Mostly Northern Brits choose the Crystal Palace. A quiet and relaxing complex that sometimes is a bit too quiet Clean and...
