    Good for the price

    The hotel is near to the beach, which it is quite good for the price we paid. At the beginning we got confused because there are two buildings for the same hotel. We expect the one in front of the beach, but it wasn't.

    very good location - insufficient lifts for the number of rooms - was allocated room and balcony with virtually no sun all day (my second visit to this hotel).

  • 4.0.Fair

    Location the only plus

    We arrived at the hotel around midnight by private transfer. My pasport had fallen out of my bag in the cab so we had to wait for the driver to bring it back to check in. The lady at reception refused to take my driving licence as id. Once given my passport the woman then also asked for the booking reference even though she had my booking in front if her. The attitude of this member of staff was terrible. We called the reception to see if we could get a glass of water and we were advised that we could not get water from anywhere until breakfast time at 8am and we are unable to drink the local water. When I asked about the mini bar not being stocked, they advised that they do not supply a mini bar despite being advertised as included. Not sure what the point in having a fridge in every room is then! The breakfast was put out at 8am and we were there for 8am every morning so I was very suprised to find the food freezing cold each time. Attitude of staff at the bar was also rude and when we ordered a sandwich there in the evening, the bread was dry and hard and no butter on. It was the same bread, ham and cheese that was put out in the morning. We asked reception where the nearest atm was, to which they had no clue. This is information they should know. The cleaner did not leave towels or take away rubbish. When we called her up she advised it was our job to take rubbish out! Reception hung up on us 3 times. Pool toilets closed. Location good and room spacious but that's it

    We’d go back.

    Breakfast buffet was very good. No one under the age of 40. Location was good. “Bar” was boring. View from our room was awesome. Housekeeping was great. Very nice vacationers, met some awesome people. Staff at check in were friendly.
