So the only thing which positive about this hotel was the beautiful garden area and the beautiful beach. In the toilet hair from the guests before me. The rooms were only every 2 days cleaned, the bed linen only 1 time in the complete week changed. Over the bathtub was a tennis ball big hole ( picture is still uploaded). Fridge was leaky. The interior was somewhat outdated no flat tv, but so an older tube from the 90. Mattress was worn out but at least a …  read hotel review

For me was only a 3a maximum 3.5 star hotel. 4* hang not only from wellness, fitness and massage rooms from, and of the swimming pool or jacuzzi, sauna and steam room or by the size of the rooms, the number of bars and restaurants, but also of the board performance. In addition the gastronomy more. As you know, about 250 rooms, divided in adjoining rooms on the ground floor and 1st floor. The many sliding row are by paths were separated.

The starters buffet was always the same in the 2 weeks, the hauptspeisenangebot was ok, the dessert buffet gets the note 5, poor. The distance to the beach was about 300 meters with, as the crow flies not go back. Indication, that the beach on a hilly path to reach is would be better. read hotel review

Food was good but in the 2. week somewhat boringly. Room clean and a good size. Bathroom with shower ... and separate bath tub great. Terrace huge with a sea view from the side.

With this hotel we value seen, but it was ok for our price, but not more. Our room was a little in need of renovation, the plaster was peeling from the ceiling in the bathroom off, then the bathtub with shower, na ja. The room smelled of cleaning very strongly after chlorine, towels were changed every two days. But you're only there to sleep in the room, so a wink. The food: one becomes always full. The diversity of all-inclusive leaves a little to be desired. The food was only lukewarm, within our week it was 2 times hot. Spices ... were missing mostly. Also you had to for the food the half-empty plates already hold, because the staff with clearing very fast. ☺ the good thing was, that it plentifully fruit, at least 3 sorts of there was always. The beach was just super, the way a bit difficult, but after 3 days everything is habit. In the entire seen, but it was a nice relaxing holiday, sun and beach made up for everything. read hotel review
