Stayed here for 5 days for the last week of September.

Hotel is in good location for beach, it's clean (rooms and bathrooms are a bit outdated) food not to bad (not much to choose from and it's the same most days) we had all inclusive, but eat out a few time as it got boring. But you get what you pay for. Staff ok, the biggest problem with hotel is the noise, I know some hotels you can hear those in the rooms next door. But this is a joke. It's like you're in the same room. You can hear word for word what people are saying.

You get woken up from about 1.00am to through to 5.00/6.00am with people coming back in. Then again about 7.30/8.00am with young kids going down to breakfast.

Would stay here again as it's cheep, but only for a few days. Don't think I could go longer then 5 days with not that much sleep!!!

Stayed: September 2017, travelled as a couple

Stayed here for 4 nights as part of a group of people. All of the staff here were very polite and friendly to us. The rooms were basic but clean and cleaned daily. We stayed all inclusive and could always find something to eat for meals, there was hot food, salad, fruit and cakes or just used the snack bar which has toasties, hot dogs, burgers and chips and ice cream. The drinks were also good although served in a plastic cup at all times including in the dining room you could have any cocktail you wanted provided they had the right mixes and even gave us shots of snaps. The pool area was an adequate size and there wasn't a mad sunbed dash in the mornings. There wasn't much entertainment on but this suited us as we went out at nights. The area itself is pretty. The beach is lovely, the shops are also really nice and lovely to look around. At night we went out to bars and a club. All in all it was a nice break and is somewhere I would return again.

Booked a four day sunshine break for 3 adults. Arrived in the middle of the night and was greeted by night porter/security guard. First impression was that the pool was very small and the rooms were a little grubby and tired. The beds were not particularly comfortable but the maids were happy to give us more pillows when asked. The air conditioning was loud.
The following morning was better, cheery staff and plenty of variety for breakfast, tables were cleared quickly. The pool bar was manned by a very friendly lady who was able to help with all inclusive - basically everything is included, cocktails, ice cream, everything. The pool snack bar is well stocked with toastie ingredients that you put together and pass to the bar to toast, chicken, pitta, burgers, hot dogs and chips. Was lovely for the first couple of days but became a bit samey. The staff in the bar were efficient and friendly.
There were plenty of sunbeds as the area opens at 9 and vast majority of guests are late sleepers (clubbers maybe?) and so the pool was adequate.
Lunch and dinner were ok. Could always find something to eat even if it wasn't particularly inspiring. There was always plenty of salad and a fantastic variety of fresh fruit available.
The nearby beach is pretty but very steep and the sand is very gritty, an odd observation, however you will understand if you stand on it barefoot! Flip flops are a must!!!
The little old town is a short walk away and worth a visit, especially in the evening. It is very pretty and has lots of shops.
All in all it was good for a cheap get away but I would not stay for longer than 4 days.

Not a hotel to bring a family to, full of drunken teenagers that have no respect for other guests at 5 in the morning, rooms are tiny for a family of 4, beds are hard my back is in bits, food always cold.staff are friendly but there's nothing to do in the hotel no entertainment at night, would not recommend this hotel if your booking for a family
