    Very good

    It was clean, well organised, nice beach, and good for families.

    The breakfast buffet wasn't up to scratch.

    Fabulous

    All the staff was very friendly and helpfull all the time. The room was very big and sunny. They have a nice beach with a windshield next to every umbrella. So it is nice lying there and enjoy the sun.

    The dinning room with the allinclusive buffet opens at 18:30 but all the restaurants at 19:00. so you feel a bit of second class if you booked only breakfast. Why did they mix slippery with non slippery pavement around the pool? It made the way from the freezeing cold pool to the sunbeds dangerous.

    Superb

    Rooms are very faso able for the price. They are very wide and well furnished. The food served in the main restaurant was not that great, but it was fair enough for the room price. Overall it was a good hotel that I would like to stay in again again in the future:))

    The sea view is very good

    1.The man in the front disk responsible for reservations was very rude and didn't even smile once 2.bathroom taps were broken and old 3.breakfast was way below average 4.how come there are not flat screen tv's and the t.v's used are very old 5.there were flies all over the food while we were eating and this is very disgusting 6.there's something resembling a waterfall in the pool and when we got closer we found mold on the underside of it to some it up the way this hotels looks from the outside doesn't give away the inside problems.

    I like to walk on the board-walk and see the fish.

    I have been many times to this hotel and had nothing to complain about but this time the reception staff were abrupt and un-friendly and totally not caring, plus the food was not as good as it has been in the past.

    It is spacious place but unfortunately the owner of the place not investing in the place to keep it updated and up to customer expectation for 5 stars hotel.

    Poof food services the buffet was very bad in terms of quality and variety, the room furniture is very very old like if I am sitting in my grandfather house who has antique stuff.

    The hotel doesn´t offer anything special for a 5 star category. The hotel doesn´t look like an 5 star hotel.

    The hotel staff mainly at the reception is vey bad and without any trainning on how to deal with the customers. The service is not 5 start
