  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Overall I enjoyed my stay. If I needed to say something about the cons, it would be I wish I would have known that the pools, restaurants, and spa were not open before I arrived, because I would have just stayed somewhere else. As a person traveling solo, I was bored. (It was just the start of the tourist season). Being close to the beach was really nice and relaxing. Also, there wasn't a shuttle to the hotel, but the city bus takes you directly there from the HER airport for 1.70 Euros; not bad at all. I am sure if I visit in the summer, my experience will be great. I would come back.

  • 2.0.Poor

    a relic of the past, neglected hotel & in bed need of some immediate renovations & updates. I had booked through expedia a room with a sea view only to be told upon my arrival that all rooms with sea view had been given to another group of hotel guests, when I complained to the management I was told that I could leave the hotel and go find another one on my own. Obviously I stayed but never to return. Most of the rooms are over 10 minutes away from the reception area and only accessible through a labyrinth of indoor-outdoor up and down concrete steps. A very bad experience all around.

    Angenehmer Aufenthalt

    Wir haben eine Woche im Hotel verbracht und es war im großen Ganzen ein toller Aufenthalt. Die Mitarbeiter waren durchweg freundlich, vor allem Maria aus dem Frühstücksteam. Das Frühstück war reichhaltig, jedoch auch eher „schwer“, wir haben uns auf einige Süßspeisen (Waffeln, Crêpes etc.) plus Joghurt und Obst beschränkt. Es gibt jedoch auch viele Eierspeisen, Brot, Aufschnitt uvm. Mittag und Abendessen haben wir nicht gebucht und können es deshalb nicht beurteilen. Das Zimmer und die Ausstattung sind tatsächlich etwas in die Jahre gekommen, allerdings war alles sehr sauber, auf dem Zimmer als auch die gesamte Anlage. Es war tatsächlich sehr überladen mit französischen Gästen, was lediglich bei den abendlichen Veranstaltungen etwas schade war, da alles auf Französisch stattfand und jeder der diese Sprache nicht spricht, auch nicht wirklich teilnehmen kann. Es ist sehr schön, dass die Anlage direkt am Strand ist, Liegen werden zwar leider von den Gästen den ganzen Tag über belegt, allerdings haben wir immer einen Platz gefunden. Das Hotel hält sich strikt an die geltenden Gesundheitsmaßnahmen, wovon sich ein Großteil der Gäste gerne was anschauen kann. Urlaub hin oder her, einige Gäste vergessen jedoch, dass diese Pandemie noch präsent ist und kriechen einem beim anstehen dennoch in den Nacken oder vergessen ihre Maske immer auf dem Zimmer. Doofer Beigeschmack, obwohl das Hotel alle Möglichkeiten zur Einhaltung bereit stellt.
