Very friendly and attentive staff and the resort itself is very nice. %singlelinebreak % The hotel was located directly at a beautiful beach. But you can also for a pool with entertainment or for several pools without animation decide. %doublelinebreak % Dining: %doublelinebreak % The buffet has a lot of choice but it didn't really liked it and we may already on the 3. day not see more. The a la carte restaurant very recommendable. %doublelinebreak % Rooms: %singlelinebreak % In our room we had enough space but should the bathroom fastest be renovated. We had light disgust us there ... to showers, since the shower curtain partly very black was %doublelinebreak % We would because of the buffets and the bathroom not more for this hotel read hotel review

Hotel is definitely not a 5 star hotel. Maximum and with all concessions 3 stars. Felt, restaurant has the charm of a werkskantine. Buffet presentation terrible. Toilets in the public areas not working. Rooms were big, but very, very worn, bathroom very old and not clean. Staff friendly, but without tip one waits too long, or is not taken into consideration. Reception staff umflexibel and rude. Guest structure: mostly very overweight canadians, which one with the food not watch would like. All in all not a recommended hotel. read hotel review

This is not a bad hotel, but in our opinion is was definitely not a 5 star establishemnt - three stars would be more appropriate. Our room was not very clean, and although it was claimed to be a junior suite, it was in reality only a standard twin-bedded room. The food was OK, and there was plenty of it, and the range of drinks was pretty good. The clientele was mainly European and Canadian package tourists, most of whom were very nice. read hotel review

    The hotel is at the end of a very long strip of resort hotels, with a good stretch of beach right next to the hotel.

    The room was advertised as a "Junior Suite", but it was no more than an ordinary twin. It was shabby, and in need of refurbishment, and there was mould and stains on the sheets, pillows and doors and walls. This was very disappointing for a so-called 5 star hotel. The wifi was intermittent.

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    There was plenty of food and quite a good range, but the quality was only average, and the variety was inour opinion not very wide - it was pretty much the same each day with only minor variations. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive and friendly even before they were tipped (and especially afterwards!).

    We thought the pools were quite nice, but as it was off season there was very little in the way of activities. In the evening the disco was fun though.

    The room was lovely we had the luck a room with a sea view to get. (on request) The decor was very nice, the minibar was a bit carelessly filled these boys were just outrageous.

  • Gastronomy

    The food was very good, very good variety. At the buffet everything very lovingly prepared much right before our eyes. Unfortunately this trip i have somewhat rummäkeln because the restaurants where one à-la-carte food there it was sometimes chaotic and you get the feeling the staff is overstrained...
