On arrival very early in the morning we were taken to our ground floor garden room with views over one of the large pools and out to sea, We found a complimentary bottle of wine, bottle...

Where do I begin. The room was great. Cleaned thoroughly every day. Food was fantastic...never dull or repetitive. I must have put on a stone in weight. Didn't do vodka in the all inclusive, which I knew before I went to be fair, but as it is all I can drink it was a bit of a bummer. Have never...

We came to this hotel for a quiet relaxing break and that was exactly what it was. It did have stunning sea views and was very peaceful. The half board option was lovely and plentiful. The staff were excellent too. We did have a little problem with our bathroom, but we went to reception and we were instantly given a...

I must say the hotel staff is amazing. Always friendly, warm & make every effort to make your stay a pleasure. Public grounds of the hotel are beautiful & the views are stunning. We found the rooms a bit small, especially considering the vast hotel grounds, but our main disappointment was the bathroom - it was not luxury standard &...

From the initial greeting to the final goodbye this was a very special place. Nothing was too much trouble, staff always smiling and friendly. Room was lovely and kept spotlessly clean. Food was always plentiful with lots of choice. We wanted a quiet, relaxing week and this was the perfect place. It might be a bit too quiet for some,...

We went there for five nights on our honeymoon. We booked a room with bubblebath and jacuzzi on the balcony. We arrived by car and there were plenty of parkingspace. We could have wished for some shaddow however because the car got very hot in the sun. At check in we had the VIP. This was a very good service...

We visited the Sensimar Royal Blue for 4 days during August 2016. Our room was upgraded (for free) from partial sea view to suite with hot tub on the balcony. The atmosphere in the hotel is very relaxing, the sea water pool was not crowded with plenty of free beds. The private beach was also very calm and quiet. There...

We had a fantastic, relaxing holiday at the Sensimar Royal Blue. The beautiful sun deck which is the first thing you see as you approach the entrance really gives a great first impression, and, as we discovered, is a prime spot for photographing the stunning sunsets. All areas of the hotel were spotlessly clean. The pools and public areas were...
