A scenic location, fine rooms, sauna, steamroom, indoor pool and jacazzi, great breakfast buffet and a fine,fine service in restaurant as well as at the reception. And now with free wifi all over the hotel. All for a more than reasonable price. Parking can be a bit tricky if you arrive late, as the number of rooms far exceeds the...

Eight of us stayed here September 2016. What a lovely time we all had. No struggling to get a sunbed, no riff raff. Good mix of nationalities who all got on with enjoying their holiday at this great location. Staff are very very nice, cannot believe some of the reviews. Found the main reception team helpful, the main downstairs bar...

Nice Hotel. Staff ok. Never tried breakfast but evening buffet good. Swimming pools are nice and clean. Local beaches are amazing. Great for kids. Great local restaurants especially the Italian "Belmondo" and the small CafeBar next door is good for Toasties and Drinks. My best advice for this resort would be to 1. Use the Supermarket up the road and...

Lovely hotel with gorgeous rooms and fabulous facilities. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel...Or coming to stay here again. I have nothing negative to say whatsoever. The staff are so friendly & helpful and the location is superb. The pool & jaccuzi were most welcome on rainy days and enjoyed the in house entertainment.
