Having been to this hotel a couple of years ago we thought we knew what we were getting. Since the hotel has been separated the Funana seems the poor relation, the whole hotel seems a little grubby you aren't allowed into the Palace side at all so the entrance to the beach is a fair walk and whereas the Palace...

This was our 3rd visit to the Funana but the first since the two parallel hotels were separated. This meant we could not use the facilities of what was the Funana now the Palace and had a much longer walk to the beach. Since our last visit the rooms have been renovated and are very good if a little noisy....

we spent two weeks at this hotel and found it very hard work doing nothing !! It is a lovely hotel just for relaxing and taking in the sun. There are trips you can go (everyone says only use the trips from hotel reps) but the guys outside the hotel are lovely! They will spot the new arrival a mile...

We booked The Grill and the Asian restaurants, but couldn't go to the table service one as my husband didn't bring any long trousers! We...

Kettle, coffee & tea supplied and a fridge. Food - something for everyone and plenty. Great variety at every meal time. 3 other restaurants to choose from although you...

Absolutely loved this hotel! Everything was fab from the staff to the room to the food. We first arrived around 9pm on Tuesday the 9th of may. We checked in and they told us dinner was on till 10pm which was good because we were starving. The complex is quite dark at night with only small lamps lighting the paths...

Excellent hotel staff can't do enough for you stress free atmosphere,not worth paying the extra for the sister hotel next door as they are exactly the same apart from the mini bar overall superb.The only downside is the walk to the beach,but it is well worth it when you get there

We also tried the speciality restaurants, the Asian was buffet style again nice but nothing special, the...
