  • 8,0.Very good

    If you want a relaxing holiday this is the perfect place, the room I stayed in could do with updating, I know some of them have been so it depends what you want to pay. The staff are friendly and helpful, but maybe more information/more help would be useful if wanting to leave the hotel & eat elsewhere especially as I was travelling by myself. You can’t use the swimming pool without a swimming cap, this could be highlighted more on Hotel information but the beach area is lovely.

    Definitely recommended

    Such a beautiful hotel with amazing staff and amazing food. My experience here was very pleasant and if you are coming to this hotel you should definitely book a table at the restaurant which is close to the sea and you'll have the opportunity to enjoy your dinner with an amazing view .

    My review

    This was the good resort. There was a secured parking. Rooms could be better. They smelled a bit bad because of humidity. There were two restaurants. I would recommend the pizzeria. The beach was without any sand, only rocks...

    Pleasantly surprised.

    Pleasantly surprised. We had booked simply as it was near the airport reasonably priced. Actually we had a lovely stay spending the afternoon by the sea and then a fabulous dinner watching the sun set. Great breakfast served at times to suit early flights. We really enjoyed our stay and could have stayed longer.
