This is a long review, but trust me, if you want a real insight into this hotel before you make the mistake of booking, read on... The holiday was booked for myself and my six year old son as our first holiday abroad on our own. I chose Agelia Beach against other competitors due to its beachfront location and promise...

I can honestly say I have never stayed in such a bad hotel. We booked it long in advance when the reviews were not THAT bad. Given the price we payed we did not expect any luxury, but something bearable. Let's start with positives. The location is good, right on the beach ( although quite dirty). It's approx 15mins drive...

On arrival though we were shown to a lovely room, basic but clean. There was food in the fridge as we had arrived early hours of the morning....

We stayed at the Agelia Beach for a week from August 14th, this hotel is by no means a 5 star but then when you consider what we paid for all inclusive, for a family of four, peak season, I wasn't expecting the Savoy!! The staff were extremely lovely. Most of the guests who were complaining were Russian and considering...

I think we got the best room in the whole hotel(Room 401) top floor with amazing sea view. Janos from the reception was extremely helpful and professional. The food in the restaurant was actually nice with some of the courses changing from day to day. No beer in the restaurant and no wineglasses for the wine. And the glasses ran...
