    It Is a 3star hotel (could not find a room at a 4-star hotel at that locAtion). we are used to only stay at 4star hotels or higher. As such, we were not comfortable at all there! Impossible pillows, tiny rooms, ugly showers, no complimentary toiletries, no safe.. In a word: not for US, not a pleasant room at all. Also food Is very basic: we had difficulty finding anything good to eat! One must bè very hungry or bè able to eat anything.

    The free beer and Wine with Dinner. Dining room on the terrace facing the bay.

    All of the facilities listed e.g the spa, tennis courts etc were additional costs to an already overpriced hotel in my opinion. The food certainly left wanting, most nights I ended up having chips and salad though my boyfriend tried some of the meat and fish he equally was not overalls impressed.

    The rooms were clean and the location was ideal from the bozava ferry. Handy having the train running to sakahran beach as well despite the mad rush to get on it from day visitors.

    Rooms could be a bit larger and need some freshening up but were ok. Air conditioning was noisy.

    Great location! Breakfast and dinner were delicious and there was a vast palette of food to choose from.

    Stairs! But it only sucks when you have your luggage. Its not bad all the other times

    The pool was great and the breakfast that was included with the room. The room was clean and has your basic needs covered but it could use some updating

    The drain smell in room 602 was very bad On day 1 towels which had been thrown on floor for changing were picked up and refolded... there should be a notice to explain policy One day there was no water Another day it was dark brown...... No wifi in rooms.. big issue for teenager

    Peaceful & relaxing location with cicadas & crickets chirping all day and evening.. Because we were catching the ferry at 5.45 am we were given a packed breakfast Plunge pool was excellent Breakfast choice was quite good

    Really outdated, paper thin walls. Simply not worth the money.

    Quiet at night.

    The value for money was lower than expected, food is just about ok but nothing refined. We arrived a little later to our first dinner in the hotel and were caught off guard by the strict closing hours of the restaurant. We were "thrown out" of the restaurant, before we could actually enjoy the "free" drinks. That leads to hotel guests piling up in front of the door when the restaurant opens and people "plundering" buffet and drinks, as long as they have a chance to get free stuff. The staff seemed "dosile" and not very helpful. Many elderly travellers, which is great for them but in case you are a younger couple, I would perhaps recommend a different place.

    The hotel is surrounded by sea and you can jump in whenever and wherever you like. Also great sea side view from our room.

    It's wonderful location straight on the beach. We had a room with the balcony and see view with good air conditioning. Beautiful and quiet area. Room was clean and every day service well done. Breakfast nothing special but good enough with fresh coffee, juices, bread but maybe will be nice to have fresh fruit in season instead the compote from can. Dinners not bad at list there was a very good effort to prepare some different seafood and meat dishes every day and vegetable with plenty of salads. Thanks.

    Great location, shaded beach area, half board meant we didn't have to worry about meals. Basic room with good view. The pool was clean. Large older style resort. The people, staff and other guests were nice.

    Air conditioning is helpless. In the room didn't work at all and in the restaurant only made irritable noise without any cooling effect.

    Staff is friendly and helpfull, location is beautifull.

    Hotel is not like for 3 stars. Maybe 2. Needs to be completely renovated. Often we had very bad smell in room, coming from nearby canalization or reservoars.

    Location of hotel and quiet area.
