Very nice and helpful staff, the rooms were cozy, even though there was no air conditioning the rooms were cool after a hot day. The restaurant was small but the food was good. The views were stunning and I think this is a good choice for travelers.

Very friendly and helpful people. The hotel looks so pretty and the view from the breakfast room is fabulous. It's a beautiful well serviced place to stay. The front desk was very prompt and what I liked about them is that they don't force or sell you the tours.

Plus it was better than the price we would have gotten directly with the company - we checked. How does he do that? He...

Friendly, helpful, competent and English-speaking, they are always there to give assistance and advice. The hotel provides accommodation for all kinds of travelers, from almost western standard...

It cost only 10 euro so I was not expected much however the quality is way beyond expectations. A huge variety of buffet breakfast, very comfortable bed, spacious bathroom and...

Exceeded our expectations! Received such a helpful email when I booked detailing how important it is to book the transfer shuttle and also all activity options, which they were able to personally advise on and book in advance - we managed Butterfly Balloons, Green tour and a Hamman all in one day. The hotel location is perfect - wonderful sleep...

This was one of the best places I've stayed while traveling abroad. Not only were the rooms clean and well-maintained, but service was highly attentive. The general manager was also very helpful as we planned what to do our two nights there.
