Good value for money, food is decent and drinks are above average for all-inclusive. Quiet but not dead, we enjoyed that. Rooms need revamp/repair but clean and served their purpose. Staff are helpful although restaurant staff generally not approachable/friendly! Then came Friday.. Invaded by loads of neanderthal-like spanish families, loud, rude and no manners! Could barely get to the buffet...

Amazing view and friendly staff. There was an issue with out toilet a few days in which meant it was not working and...

Main Restaurant is not stocked with a large variety of good food but its eatable. The poolside bar is quite good for snack food. The Millenium Bar was a no no for our group (7 adults) the two male staff members were rude & looking for tips, if you are not tipping you don't get the good drinks & real...

Absolutely rubbish hotel. Hotel facilities are so poor. If there were a zero rating I would have picked that. Wifi is only on the reception area. Bed and beddings were so poor quality and uncomfortable. They said it's 4 Star room, it made me laugh. Never going back there again. Location is good as near the beach but other than...

As stated in the headline, Ignore the bad reviews. This hotel is a modestly set out complex, as we first explored, every corner had something different to check out. Location wise it's perfect! It's right in the middle between the Old Town which is crammed to every nook and cranny with little shops and restaurants/cafe's, and the New Town with...
