Lovely hotel in a lovely setting. We knew this was a hotel that only accommodated a small ratio of English guests and this was not a problem. However when the awful voice of the entertainment lady introduced activities each day in different languages it was very irritating as she was so high pitched places as she was so loud!!

The spa and gym services are more that good! The people are easygoing and very gentle. You should pay a visit for a relaxing massage and a thallaso treatment. It needs renovation though. This is the only reason I had not to rate it as exceptional

What a brilliant hotel something for everyone. The whole place was spotless we had a fantastic time. The staff were efficient and friendly except the bar staff at night who were a bit grumpy. Food fantastic and the beer was even good better than the usual gassy all inclusive stuff. Entertainment was a bit iffy but they all worked hard....

The Hotel was very nice! But the people who worked there were amazing. I had two problems and both of them were solved as soon as possible. The food was also very good (high quality and big quantity).
