This place is really clean. We had a junior suite and it was lovely. The moment you walk in you feel welcomed. Nothing was too much trouble......until you go to the restaurant. Breakfast was good but that is free. If you pay for half board you will regret it. Awful and I will generally eat anything. Wine waiters were great...

Late flight meant that we had no idea about the local area until sun-up.... when, looking out from our side street balconies we could still see the sea... and the one pool at the back of the hotel... we had chosen well!!...

The hotel is pretty nice inside and outside too, the beach is very close, the pools are ok, the staff's english is hardly understandable, and sometimes they didn't want to speak in english, or they just don't speak english, which is a really big problem...
