    There was a company event on the pool deck one of the days, they spoiled any attempts at resting a bit since the music was very loud for their zumba activities.

    Bed not so comfy for us. Very big hotel and a bit far from eateries, so you pretty much have to eat there...but the food was good!

    Sea view great from our balcony. Meals very good, with attentive wait staff.

    The room interior could perhaps afford a better refurbishment to modern-day look, and perhaps have a coffee maker in the rooms :)

    This hotel has an amazing beautiful location on a cliff overlooking the beach. Very peaceful and soothing place. The staff are extremely friendly, hospitable, always there to help you and fulfill your requests at a times. They deliver whatever you need to your doorstep before you even reach the room. This hotel staff are the most warmhearted, friendliest and most hospitable I've ever seen. I love them. The hotel facilities are not the state-of-the-art (given the hotel has been built in the 1980s and still has facilities since that time, plus it is afterall a 3star hotel and is great for a 3 star hotel) - so I definitely recommend this hotel to whoever is not looking for luxury but is looking for comfort, peace, relaxation, good service and a beautiful unique beach location! :)

    Big hotel right on the ocean coast.

    • Standard Twin Room with Sea View and Balcony
    • Stayed 3 nights

    It is a large touristic hotel near the beach (though you have to walk there down from the 50 m hight rock where the hotel is built - half a kilometer path with stairs). The hotel can be be crowded on weekends or during the high season.

    Beautiful views from the sea side rooms. Good meals, and buffet dinners include drinks. Smells and noices of the ocean (both in a good way). A beach for those who is interested in it (and there are a couple of restaurants with fresh fish near the beach).

    Safe in the room didn't work.. Cash machine (bankomat) required 6-digital pin-code.. It is not common for multinational bank cards. Cash are recommended :) There is no public transportation. Rental car is really needed for travelling.

    The view was wonderful. Everything is clean. Friendly stuff. Excellent, different meal in a restaurant.

    The lifts are quite small and very busy so prepare you will spend quite a lot of time waiting.

    The place is a bit worn out but still very nice. The staff is friendly. Parking available next to the hotel for free which is nice as you won´t get there by any other mean. Room was quite spacious, free bottle of water every day. Balcony rocks! The view was breathtaking. Clean premises, just old. Pool & lobby & breakfast area nice. Breakfast good. The buffet dinner is EUR 20.00 per person.

    The closest beach was extremely polluted with red algae both on the beach and in the water what means to us that the hotel sewage system does not work properly. The breakfast offer was boring, everyday the same, and the scrambled eggs were not fluffy, they were dry and without taste. The hotel building and the indoor pool would deserve renovation

    The view from the room was excellent, the bed was good.

    I think the room furniture needs renewal; I was given a room on 10th floor which is great because of the view, paid extra for sea view, but the furniture really needs updating. We were awake at 6am with the noise in surrounding rooms which is quite strange as the hotel was not full as in the summer.
