We spent a lot of time at the adults only pool, which was maintained peaceful and relaxed! The slides were a fun addition and there were plenty of activities. The food was beautiful and there was plenty of variety...

We stayed here as part of an all inclusive trip with Thomas Cook between 14th and 21st October 2016. The hotel is located on a hillside and our room was about as far as you could get from reception (1715)! We are both in our early sixties and in reasonable shape and we did not find it particularly onerous to...

After our stay at the hotel, I read the other reviews, and the are right. Some points: The hotel is on a hill side and you need to climb up the hill to get to the rooms on the top. And it nearly in the middle of nowhere, i.e. you need to have a car, take the bus or walk...
