            • Family with children
              8.8

              Very nice location, well designed lobby, bar, rooms. Restaurant at the swimming pool served high quality food/snacks. Easy acces to the beach. Reception helped us finding alternative transport as we were blocked due to the Vulcanic ashcloude.

              Fitness room was minor. Minibar was locked.

            • Couple
              7.4

              Staff were friendly, one porter was especially polite and helpful. Excellent location. Bathrooms were very spacious and casino was good fun.

              The tiles in the bedroom were not very attractive. There was no complimentary water which you would normally have in a 5*. Nice hotel but not the equivalent to the 5* hotels in Ireland.

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              The location is close to the beach with good views. The pool area and gardens are kept to a high standard. We always book a superior room with sea view and balcony and find it to be of a good size. The Maid service is very good. The sunset bar veranda is a great place for a drink day or night with a great view of the beach and pool. Free WiFi is also useful.

              Poor service at the pool bar / restaurant, very difficult to get service at most times. Poolside service is hit and miss, it depends who is on as to whether you get any service. Some staff are very good and some are very lazy. This has been the case every year. The quality of the food at breakfast is good but it is poorly cooked, very often the scrambled eggs were undercooked, as was the bacon. Also every year we find that after two or three days that we don’t want the breakfast, as it is very limited. We have booked this hotel through Booked.net for the last five years and this was the first time we had been asked to pay for our stay upon arrival. Every other year we have paid upon departure. This did not overly concern us as we knew what the Hotel was like, had it been our first time then we would have been unhappy to pay up front feeling that the Hotel had our money no matter what.

            • Family with children
              9.6

              The hotel was lovely, the staff friendly & helpful. The poolside gardens & terraces were beautiful, overlooking the beach and best of all easy access to the beach. The maids came to the room twice daily and towels and bedding were changed every day. We will definitely be returning

              Good breakfast, nice room, Nice staff, good outdoor area, nice terrace with bar just inside the door.

              They had a very poor wifi system, it didn`t work in my room, I needed to sit in the lobby with my laptop. This is a 5 star hotel? And of course it should work in the rooms as well.

              9.6

              As I was holidaying on my own I felt very safe and the staff were very helpful.

              I didn't have a balcony. I would book sea view next time.

            • Single
              7.4

              The excellent location, the buffet breakfast, the professionalism of the staff.

              I have made a reservation for two rooms. My credit card was charged at that time (15 days before my arrival) without my authorization. At the check-out I complained, as I used that credit card just for reservation purposes. They have tried to credit back the amount charged, apparently without success.

            • Family with children
              4.4

              First dont believe in any free to cancel wording on the web site.. the resort was great with lots of good value bars and restaurants to chose from ,the location of the hotel was great but certainly was not 5* , the continental breakfast was great the english one not could improve immensely .

              Before booking I checked to see if it was ok to cancel as my wife was not here with only one room left (lie) I booked it , the family room was not ok with kids or wife so wanted to cancel ,this was not allowed I would lose 100% of my 1.500 e ,"non refundable" which clearly was not . on booking it clearly says free to cancel if before 2 days , so had to go only to find really hard sofa beds for kids riddled with ants internet slow with limited time my time mine ran out , we asked to move but was offered another room at 100 e per night then a much more tatty room for free. I think the hotel was dated in need of much wow,manager done what he could but boss was more interested in getting more money from us than making our stay a comfortable

            • Family with children
              7.4

              I liked the pool facility, breakfast, easy access to the beach, free internet access, availability of the staff.

              Yes. every night between 2 - 4 a.m., there was a terrible smell in my part of the hotel (bigger family rooms for 4). I was also not happy, when the check-out took place, the reception staff was to charge me more, than I was supposed to. They recognize the mistake and made a new bill, but I wouldn´t expect this in 5 stars hotel.

              Everything was perfect. Upgrade to a seaview room with balcony well worth the extra money. Very comfortable bed & room. Plenty toiletries, continuously replaced when used. Perfect and soundless airco. Excellent and varied breakfast. Extremely pleasant staff.

              The pool restaurant closed at 18.30, I would have preferred an hour later.

              The location is very good. The pool is big and clean.

              The service is not good. There were hardly anyone to serve by the pool, and when you ordered in the pool restaurant sometimes they did not come with what you ordered. Most of the staff seemed tired of tourists and did not give any feeling of personal touch. For us it is not a place we have to go back to. We will not be a faithful customer because of the service in the reastaurant and bar. The athmosphere at the hotel is cold ecxept for a few people working there.

              The friendliness and professionalism of all the staff working in the Hotel was the best I have encountered in a long time.

              Just the length of time we spent waiting on the lifts.
