Great holiday for a couple in their mid seventies!

  • May 2014
A fantastic holiday. The hotel itself may be beginning to show the need for attention in a couple of area's but these became insignifficant as the quality of service, food, drink, more than made up for any such minor factors. The resturant, pool bar and beach bar staff were excellent and made us feel welcome and that we were 'important visitors to the hotel', not just another elderly couple. The hotel managers were constantly checking that standards were being maintained and the two guest relations officers contacted us almost every day to check that all our needs were being met; ... particular thanks to Tahmina in this regard. Before our holiday I had contacted the hotel by e-mail, advising that we were a couple in our mid seventies and woul appreciate a room on a higher floor, with if possible, sun on the balcony in the afternoons. We were delighted to find on arrival, that this had indeed been arranged; thanks for this initial, of the many considerations shown to my wife and myself. read hotel review

96,8% ? Rightly so! Small, cute hotel, quiet, family run. The size of the room is completely sufficient, smaller renovations would be necessary, in the Jan 2014 but taken care of. Wi-fi is available in the reception area, pool usable. 150 megabyte are free of charge per room, then you have to pay (250 megabyte for 10 Euro ) Minibar extra charge, 1 bottle of water free of charge every day. The average age was everything from 20 to 70 years, the entertainment didn't harm. Mostly german, a few russians. read hotel review

    The friendliness of the whole staff was more than surprising to us. It is a really every request. Notably someone to be highlighted, the other opposite unfair. No matter, whether the pool bar, or the restaurant or the reception is. In all areas of the hotel you could communicate in german. Childrens care and doctor were available, by us were however not used. On arrival we were given a room with single beds. On demand and note the we anniversary had, we got without further problems a room with a double bed. Also comments on the improvement were adopted and implemented immediately, it has thanked us.

    The transfer from the airport took about 35 minutes depending on how many hotels were driven to. The beach is about 5 minutes walk through a nice and well-kept area. The beach bar offers enough seats, cold drinks and delicious food. Opposite the hotel is a large shopping mall, with a pharmacy, supermarket and various souvenir shops, restaurents are available, but we didn't use it.

  • Room

    The size of the room was adequate and comfortable. Television with some german programs, brummende air conditioning (hardly used) minibar well stocked! Bathroom was slightly in need of renovation, but it should be in spring 2014 larger replacement takes place.

    What should you to the animation team say? Just great! Very hard, always friendly, funny, always a kessen funny and he never pushy! Thank you to Momo, Felix and nany Beautiful evenings we spent in the shisha corner with ghalab, the young burns really lichterloh! , just fun (didn't know the my wife so dance) The supply at the beach/pool towels, drinks are back or glasses cleaning was exemplary. Every day someone came past and offered sweets/snacks.

  • Gastronomy

    A ' la carte restaurants are available, by us however were not used, since the food in the hotel was very tasty. There were theme evenings every evening, the food varied and varying made. The cleanliness we can only say, that as some could learn a lot may, as there was nothing to complain about. Funny side were the spatzen on the outdoor terrace with the breakfast, always there, but never intrusive. The atmosphere was always great, very accomodating, occasionally we thought, with hellseherrischen skills work. Tips are appreciated, but not expected.
