It was my second time and this time I chose it by purpose. It's a not too big hotel with a familiar athmosphere. Situated right on that beautiful white sandy beach. I chose a Bahari room right on the sea front overlooking the nice garden and Wifi on the room. With other room categoreis you get free Wifi at the...

We arrived at 10.30am after a very long and complicated journey from the UK, and were handed a very welcome drink, before a very swift check in. We arranged an airport transfer with the hotel and were...

Our first time in an all-in resort... and we were pleasantly surprised. Even though it was fully booked over the new year, the layout doesn't make it feel too crowded.
