One of the most elegant hotels I have ever visited. I was here for business and it has all the capabilities for business meeting, workshops…etc and also for family pleasure.

Location: Amazing view straight on the sea shore so what you sea is the endless horizon. Right on the beach, so you enjoy the scenery of the surfers, waves and sea gulls (Check out the pictures). There is no other transportation except the Taxi if you wanna go anywhere form the hotel, unless you are a walking liker… it is a long yet nice walk to the main street

From the moment you enter the reception you feel the professionalism of the atmosphere, front desks staff are very friendly and smiling. They try their best even to remember your name during your stay, so they can greet you with the personalization “Ola”. The reception is very modern with its “swingers” hanging from the roof, the walls are covered with electric drawing that glues in the dark and the walls are covered with glitters and bedazzled.

Rooms are so spacious, with a heck of technology like the WOW factor – which is a mix of electric light in the room, or the night mode, the All on mode …etc
Curtains are electrically managed, so you wake up in the morning and with a button all curtains will opened and you can enjoy the scenery.
It also has a very good Mini bar, IPod aux, daily complementary water bottles, and very nice love-sofa looking over the beach

Breakfast in the hotel is full of choices, oriental ones, cereals, fruits, cheese & cold cuts, all kind of juices, bakery, a la minute omelette. Coffee & tea… everything you want is going to be there. Restaurant staff are very helpful and always vigilant if you want anything extra.
The scene from the first floor restaurant is amazing, while you eat, you can see the sea and the beach with some elegant wooden decoration and some statues outside of the glass.

The hotel is a piece of art in everything; I would for sure recommend it for everyone looking for luxurious staying :)

What a place. Visited here after much research. Super-stunning. Our room overlooked the sea. Infact as you gazed out of the window whilst lying on the bed, it made it look like the hotel was in the middle of the ocean. So much to do here. An awe-inspiring hotel. Trendy places to eat and drink.

Went looking for a cocktail overlooking the city ....... The cocktail bar almost looks like someone has owners what to do with the attic - added some purple and green lights, grabbed the best looking waiters and waitresses from the hotel and - voila - a cocktail bar. Noises, tables that needed replaced and no tables next to the windows. Could have been in a basement and it would have made no difference to the collection of 15 year olds clutching a beer in the bar.

A great shame.

wow, what an amazing location and hotel. Definitely a glamor hotel, but the staff and the incredible views make it an experience. Make sure to stop at the bar at the top of the hotel. a must be seen bar and view.

Room Tip: stay on high floors with view towards town. all views are good above 3rd floor.
