We had a family room (202) for 3, we overlooked the pool and the sea beyond, perfect position. Breakfast was plentiful and varied. The hotel is about 10 minutes from shops and restaurants...

Rooms were very well kept and air conditioned. Getting to the beach was easy via a short 5 minute walk. It was also very convenient to rent a car via the hotel, price was...

This hotel is situated near a sandy beach with several providers of sun beds between 300 and 800 meters from the hotel, but we preferred staying in the nice garden, close to the swimming pool as it's not so hot as the beach. The hotel is of a human size, the staff is very kind and speaks many languages, and...

Spent one week beginning October with my two young-adult daughters. The pool was exceptionally clean in a lovely with green bushes, grass and palm trees all around, very relaxing. Lots of lounge chairs and parasols available (this was low-season). The beach (sand and pebbles) is a short walk along a path through bamboo and a quiet little road. The triple...

This hotel is so good we just don't go anywhere else now in the summer. It is so peaceful and relaxing outside in the lovely gardens and the large pool is never busy.
