We had a lovely week in Indigo Mare in the end of October.The staff was very friendly and always ready to help. They helped with organizing trips and everything. The breakfast was delicious and we ate it close to the sea. The room was cleaned every day. The sea was warm and the pool was also warm enough for swimming....

We were given an apartment 'in a quiet part' but were not informed of the cockerel crowing from before 5am every morning until sunset. We asked to be moved but realised the cockerel could be heard over the whole area. The buffet meal area was cramped. The breakfast dishes were poor quality and we never saw any proper bacon or...

Don't get me wrong, the apartments are nice but they are not stunning. Not for the amount of praise it gets around. The rooms as such are big but not very fancy, the pool is quite small and the beach next to the hotel is nice but nothing compared to some others around. The breakfast though is very very good...

Although all 3 rooms (living, bed and bath) were big the furnishing is below average, old fashioned and basic. I could also see that rooms weren't clean properly.
