We had a very nice time in this beautiful hotel. There was a great restaurant by the beach with very nice fresh juices and food. The garden of the hotel was beautiful and well taken care off. The services were also very good. The people were very kind and always smiling. The nicest staff member we met was Nicomang Sonica....

I and my friend had our holidays in September, 2016. We were satisfied with the hotel, the location is good, staff was nice, helpful and sympathetic. Special thanks to Jelena who helped a lot when one of us got illness (she even brought medicine from her home). We would definitely come back. Roma and Daina, Vilnius, Lithuania

Just returned from a 12 night stay. We had a family room which was situated across the road from the hotel. For anyone who has stayed in a large complex it is just a matter of 100 yards across from the main reception area. The room was very clean with comfortable beds albeit a little dated as expected. The food...

We've visited the hotel for the third time and its gotten better and better. The new poolbar looks way better than the old one and is also always clean. The staff there did a very good job, especially Vangelis. We really enjoyed our time there and we will definitely come back again. The atmosphere is pleasant and all in one...

Hotel was nothing like how it was described. First of all we paid to be all inclusive; the food was disgusting, not suitable for British people. Website described the hotel to have a snack bar which was not included; instead there were crisps and ice creams behind the bars which you had to pay extra for in between meal times....

The hotel is in a 15 min walking distance from the centre. In front of a hotel is a sand/stone beach but around 400meters on the right is a beautiful sandy beach. The food is very good, better than some 5* hotels, the staff is exepctionaly kind. Rooms are simple and clean. Our room was situated opposite of an entrance...
