  • 6.0.Good

    March 2020. The staff were helpful and professional. The accommodation was spacious with an open view from a large terrace. There was only one restaurant available but the breakfast was very good if you like to eat a lot. The indoor pool was not included in the price and charged 10 euro per hour. I chose this apartment/hotel because it stated it had a gym and indoor pool. The gym is very poorly equipped with not even a rower or multi gym. Unfortunately at this time of year little is open on site and the property is not near to supermarkets or restaurants. Fortunately there is a reasonably priced bus service but after plenty of walking we did not relish the very steep climb to get back up to the property. I am sure this is a good place in the summer for families who want to stay put.

    Great value, but could use some upgrading

    The hotel is a bit out of fashion, but the kids loved it with a lot of fun details and the enormous atrium with and aquarium on the first floor. There were birds inside and we felt like living in the jungle. The rooms could use some upgrading. The man in the restaurant by the pool was extremely friendly and polite!

    Very happy

    We absolutely loved the hotel, its layout, the room. Pool was very cold. The only downside is the location is just a smidge too far to any other restaurants when you lile to get out and are not all inclusive

    Lovely big hotel, rooms were lovely and clean. We had a sea view and it was lovely to sit out on the balcony and sea the views and watch the boats. The spa was great we had massages and then spent time with all the other things the spa had to offer. The restaurant was good, normal buffet breakfast and the evening meal was good, a nice selection. The only thing this hotel lacked was a map, it’s so big the first day we struggled to find things, but it was no trouble to walk around and where all the facilities were. Fab place to stay, good location! Will definitely go back!

    Ok for the price.

    Have stayed at the neighbouring holiday village as a family (and worked there 12 years ago for a few years) I knew exactly what we were getting when I booked. The pool area isn’t as nice as it’s neighbour but the beach club more than makes up for that. Could do with a play ground. Also would be nice to be able to upgrade to all inclusive which you cannot do unless you stay for over 3 days (which means you can’t use the kids clubs and have to pay for all drinks) The kids disco is way too late (9pm) when there is nothing to do until then if you can’t access the kids club.
