The same suite as in the vacation before, you feel really arrived ☺ perfect size of the rooms. Fortunately this hotel is not too big, it is almost family-like, but it has a large area, the liberating looks and not is overwhelming. The pools are of a size, with some outdoor swimming pool before envy would pla …  read hotel review

The reason we com back to this hotel is that it have a good location and a nice "not to big beach" nice staff all over place, the beach, the pool bar, the restaurantes. etc. You can always ask them if you have any questions, and they always try to help. ... The food here is realy good!! The Cooks here make realy good food all over. That is a promise! Try also the fish resturante (Felucca) perfect good seafood. You also have an animation teem here, who make you happy. Playing boccia, beach ball, dart, and gym in the sea, show in eavening etc. Realy kindly teem!

Hotel was big in space, lots of places to eat and always well looked after ie gardeners work so hard in the heat to maintain the beautiful surroundings. The hotel was spotless all the time and there was no recommendations on how the hotel could be cleaner as we found no issues. We stayed all inclusive which included eating in the a la carte restaurants and also had plenty of choices of what to eat. We also upgraded our room to a deluxe which made the room size very large. read hotel review

    Always a range of activities around the pool. Big thanks to Marc Raymond, Dino and the animation team who kept us entertained with their activities, although we did not want to take part, they still included us when coming around the pool to talk and also were very friendly. Well done guys...you do a great job :) Pool is huge with lots of sunbeds arounds...we never struggled to get a sun bed.

    Plenty of choice for meal time...few a la carte restaurants ...some located in neighbouring hotels but this has an indian and meditarian which was lovely and both service was again excellent. Food quality was excellent, always great variety and all eating areas and bar areas are very clean.m We tipped a waiter and the cleaner because we were happy with the work they did for us. If you tip...you do get treated slightly better as in ...drinks brought to you straight away etc.

    Hotel is right on a beach, the beach comes into the hotel, the sea is calm and refreshing. Very nice, There is a few small shops located in the hotel complex and also a pharmacy, and smaller shops located across the road (about 2 min walk from hotel). Alternatively, the hotel is located approx 15 mins from the marina which has lots of cafes, bars and shops which is good for an evening out. The hotel is located approx 15 mins away from the airport so not a long transfer once arriving.
