Astir Beach is a typical family hotel with everything you might need to get away from a busy life. The rooms are equipped with remote air-condition, balcony shutters and flat TV. However, make sure you get the room in the renovated part of the hotel if you are demanding on high standard. The room is cleaned everyday, towels supposed to...

We stayed for 10 days all inclusive and were a little disappointed with the hotel itself. We were told we had the best room in the entire hotel but honestly the only great thing about the room was the view... (no double beds, bare that in mind) Staff were friendly enough, but found the animation team quite annoying. We both...

I am very disappointed! My opinion? 1 star hotel! We paid 1650 euro for triple room, and this is what we get! The bathroom curtain almost falls on our heads.It's a danger for our kid! Shame on you, Astir Beach!

We booked last minute and got this place 'dumped' on us by Teletext Holidays. The accommodation is in building blocks with most rooms being exactly the same. The rooms were sparse and the bathroom was in dire need of some TLC. The A/C only works with the magnetic key fob on your room key ring. Planes for the airport fly...

Fantastic International hotel, amazing animation team made all the activities really fun, both in the daytime and evening. Lovely freshly prepared food, lots of options and beautiful fresh fruit and cakes at snack times (if you are all inclusive) Friendly staff. Amazing location right on the beach. Restaurants close by with a greater variety a 10 minute walk away. Bus...

Pretty good value for money. We took the half board deal, even most of the visitors had all inclusive. The all inclusive is good choice if you do not plan to travel and like to drink during the day. The hotel facilities are not luxury but defiantly OK. The stuff was very friendly and the animation team always suggested good...
