We had a great time with my friend in this hotel. Customer service was great. Rooms and bathroom very clean, room service, lovely ladies! I have two points which I think should be taken under consideration. 1. For breakfast, you have a number of drinks available there are all included. Unfortunately for a diner you have to pay even for the water. We have been on half board, so I understand alcohol is not included, but water should be for dinner for free. We paid €5.90 for two bottles. 2. Evenings were boring and quiet. I didn't expect discos, but it would be lovely if there was music in the evening next to the swimming pool. Probably more people would stay in a hotel and spend money for drinks there instead of going out to the bars. The hotel is good for families close to the beach, and the views from the room were fantastic!

We had a great stay at this hotel. The reception staff were welcoming and helpful and we were able to park on site (for a fee). Our room was clean, spacious, and comfortable with a recently refurbished bathroom. The pool area was great (and no music, which was a definite and welcome bonus in this area) and the lift access direct to the beach was very convenient. Breakfast was excellent - lots of variety, much of it freshly prepared, and nice to be able to sit outside on the terrace too. The staff at breakfast were excellent too - friendly and helpful. We only stayed one night but would’ve happily stayed several more and will hopefully return.
