Nice hotel, near many attractions
We had a nice stay, the room was clean and breakfast plentiful. My only gripe is with the beach -- the dried seaweed should be cleaned out daily.

Good food, nice rooms can be recommended
The food was good and the rooms were nice and the sunbathing facilities were good IF you managed to get a sun bed. There were just little things that could have been better such as, 2 times we had problems with our room key and needed a new one, we had all inclusive and should have beennable to have soup when arriving late, but that wasn’t so. The map of the property is not very discriptive.etc. But all in all, a nice place to stay

Rooms are not 5 star
The rooms are not 5 star. Super small, no mini bar, only an empty fridge and pretty basic. The other installations (swimming pool and restaurants) are good in general.

4/10 Fair

I would like to start by saying that I never wrote a bad review in my life. But this is not a 5* star hotel. We were all SO DISAPPOINTED, that we requested our money back so we can go to a different hotel, but it was non refundable.. The pictures online look much better than what it actually is. The furniture and most things in the hotel are very old. You don’t feel like u came to a luxury hotel. The service is not 5 star. U have to ask for basic things that should be included in the room. In addition, you have to put £10 deposit per beach towel. You have to pay for bed/beach umbrella on the beach that is part of the hotel. I would say, that the hotel upgraded our room, which was still not to par what so ever. Overall, if you want to go to a 5 star hotel, and enjoy the room and hotel facilities, this is not the place for you. If you are just looking for a place to sleep and will be out and about most of the day, the place is fine.

I love this place, and the excellent buffet. I just wish the AC in my room worked. The fan works but no cold air.
