  • September 2013
Very nice above a rock located hotel, but was already a bit old. Many of the rooms within the upper range were already a bit older and could be updated. The garden is very well maintained. The beach area is only about a staircase with many stairs accessible. This could be just returned for people, which are so good to foot, be very difficult. The beach area with the beach chairs was relatively small. The beach chairs were partly already very old and worn and partially very, very uncomfortable. Under the influence of the sea was in september sunbathing area ... not flat, but rather diagonally, which lie on the beach, with the time uncomfortable can. The water was very clean, but were in the bay many areas of some large stones in the water, which made swimming only in certain area at low tide and high tide makes possible. The staff at the beach was very helpful. The breakfast buffet is very rich, very large choice and with many fresh products. Through the half board we have every evening in the restaurant - there is only one restaurant. The food was very, very good. With half board there were changing menus - however the selection of dishes repeated after a week. But you can à la carte food. The prices are rather upscale. The service at night was sometimes overstrained, as the most guests due to the view and the sunset at the same time, appeared. On the nachschenken of the beverages you can quite unfortunately somewhat to wait. If you want a nice table right in front of the balcony with a great view of the sea, must then, if the restaurant opens in the evenings, since these tables very quickly occupied. The thalasso centre has a lot of choice and seemed very well kept. The staff is very friendly. There are many golf courses in the vicinity, the good reachable by taxi are. read hotel review
