We stayed at the Plaza Hotel for a week from 5th Feb. We were pleasantly surprised with the high standard of the hotel particularly as the package deal was very reasonable!

We booked out holiday last minute through Travelzoo's Top 20! £265 for one week half board at the Plaza Beach. After reading the reviews, I was a little apprehensive, but .. pleasantly surprised. I am a seasoned traveller used to schedule not charter flights and 5 star hotels, so this was a new experience for me. The flight was dreadful,...

We stayed at the PBH from 30th December to 5th January 2007. Overall the hotel was great value for money (half board), situated near beach restaurants so you could go out for lunch and had comfortable well apportioned bedrooms. Depending on the type of person you are you may find some of these points irritating. Meals were buffet style (excellent...
