    • 10.0.Exceptional

      The property doesn't look much from the road but it is enormous inside and designed by some crazy designer - it looks awesome. Even the car park looks incredibly designed (go and look at it!!). Great sky bar with wonderful views, nice beach area, a few swimming pools on different levels - including the roof.

    • 6.0.Good

      The staff is horrible, a 5 star hotel should be on a 5 star hotel stamdard. Staff doesnt speak english very poorly, no help from the staff. They have an infinity pool but you have to pay 25 euros extra pr day. Only 23 people are allowed up there a day. That was the only thing that was worth about this hotel if you take that away its just a regular hotel, with poor service.

      They charge 20 euro per person to step a foot

      The room and the staff were nice . When asked about accessing the top pool just to take one pic only they wanted 20 euro charge per person . I told them the only reason I booked this hotel was only for the pic in the top pool for my blog . I will never use this hotel again .in future is plenty of other hotel in saranda

    • 2.0.Poor

      Deafening building works ruined stay.

      Some great aspects to the hotel , great views etc. Stylish / quirky. Out of season so all pools etc shut. Some building works going on within the hotel as well as DEAFENING building works next door from 8am til 7pm every day with diggers and pneumatic drills. Absolutely ruined any potential quality of stay. I will seek a refund. Customer service poor in general - one or two staff pleasant / helpful , others rude. Breakfast often ran out of items. Tried to fob us off with two separate rooms due to a 'technical problem' with family room. We had to insist on interconnecting rooms which we got in the end.

    • 4.0.Fair

      This is not a 4 star hotel

      This hotel was not at all living up to the standards of a 4 star hotel. Our first room which were supposed to be a deluxe room, hardly had any furniture no windows and looked like it was put together in the last minute. It was a big challenge to get to change to another room and very unfriendly staff. Don’t pay 20 euros per person to go up to the infinity pool! First it doesn’t look like anything on the pictures, secondly it didn’t even look clean when we were there, also it’s very strange to pay extra for that. The breakfast was also below all possible standard and yet again with very unfriendly and not at all service minded staff.
