The hotel may have been a 4star at one time, but sadly the décor needs updating, as does the chef in the restaurant.The food needs more imagination and effort, and should cater a little more for western tastes, as rather than catering mainly for eastern European/ Russian etc. I would say the star rating should be more like 3 star....

The food was ok although there are so many nice places to eat we decided to dine out most nights. The staff were excellent, polite helpful and couldn't...

Hotel was in good place, from 10 minutes from beach. Use a"wild" beach near the city, there is not wind and waves:-). The pool on the top of hotel was very good, especially in the mornings. In reception was very friendly staff. Thank you!

After booking 2 weeks, half board, in this hotel in September and then reading the reviews we arrived here with some trepidation. Completely unfounded.

“Location ok, near old town (10-15 min walk), room on 4th floor (hotel has 5 floors) facing the main street - traffic noise.”

“Be aware that rooms overlooking the back of the hotel do not have a good view. Request a room to the front or to the side street.”
