This hotel definitely does not reflect what a 5 star hotel should be. The reasons for this are: The food is definitely not of 5 star quality, The indoor pool is accesible only if you a pay a fee, I have been staying in hotels for over 25 years and this is the first time I have ever seen such...

Nazmul in the restaurant was fantastically welcome to our family, he was certainly 5 star and an absolute credit to the hotel. Carlos on reception was also fantastic, and Vera was very good with my youngest when we tried the kids club. A couple of individual things happened which weren't quite 5 star, including a badly communicated change in menu...

Stayed at this hotel on an AI basis for 11 days from 19th September 2016. To be fair, the hotel is perfectly equipped for a self catering holiday and maybe this is where it gained its 5 stars. As for AI, the food lacked variety and shockingly we had to pay for our drinking water(not exactly AI if u cant...

We spent a week, 3 of us sharing a quad appartment. Very spacious rooms. Housekeeping kept everything very clean. The kitchen is compact and well appointed. The washing machine was greatly appreciated. We could freshen up the beach towels every 2 days and came home with clean clothes. The courtesy bus to the old town/beach saved our legs. Our stay...

On first impressions this is a very attractive hotel, and it could be amazing with a little more thought and some investment. The reception area is quite swish and spacious and the reception staff are friendly and helpful.
