We were here in June 2014 and it was basically a steal (7 nights half board + flights from germany for 2 adults 1 infant for less than 800euros). Nevertheless i would also have given 5 points if we had paid 400 euros more. This family-led hotel makes you feel welcome. The pools are great. Regarding food, the breakfast is...

Firstly this review is late as I realised I didn't pressed submit so many months ago. We stayed end of May beginning of June for 11 nights. Having previously worked in the hotel in 2009 this was a leisure visit. Bearing in mind I can still remember what the hotel used to be like. WOW the change is unbelievable!! Reception...

Issues - Salt. If you have been advised by your Doctor to reduce your salt intake, or you don’t like salty food, this is definitely not the place for you. Every lady we spoke to found the food too salty and around three quarters of the men found it too salty. Some ate outside of the hotel on occasions purely...

The hotel has mainly German and Russians staying in it. The food was excellent. My main moan is about the fact that you have to PAY for your sun beds on the beach and ALSO beside the swimming pool !!!! The hotel has a lovely position on the beach and I think it is scandalous that one has to pay...

I was surprised on reading some negative reviews of this hotel as this was not our experience at all. The hotel has mainly Russian, German and other 'foreign' guests and the British are in the minority and as a result the hotel caters food wise for these guests - hence not a chip or burger in sight. The food was...

The location is great - rooms clean and basic - great to be able to walk right onto the beach. Food though was a let down - very basic especially at dinner time- pretty much no love or pride put into the hot meal prep. Overall though we did enjoy ourselves but would recommend dining out in the evening in...
