Reviewed yesterday NEW

We arrived here 3 days into our holiday. Unfortunately the hotel was unable to open as planned, we therefore had to stay elsewhere in the meantime. However, the hotel kindly upgraded our rooms from Superior to 2 bedroom with private pool. From the moment we arrived we knew the hotel was very good. The sun was shining and the staff...

We visited Sea side on April, which is considered off season. But still the quality of everything was great. We took the all inclusive deal and loved it! The food was surprisingly excellent. the rooms are nice, not too big but definitely sufficient. If you want to explore the island you will need to rent a car as the hotel...

Summer season just started, on Friday 14th of April (Easter week), and we have been among the first fortunate guests to enjoy this beautiful place. There were many people, but not yet "too many", fortunately. Great hospitality and courtesy of all the staff, starting from the reception people up to the waiters at the lunch/dinner restaurants. But one special thanksgiving...

The hotel is great, however, the staff, on the other hand, are horrific. On my last night, I tried cutting into what was a raw chicken schnitzel which was almost impossible to cut with a regular knife and fork. When complaining to the manager, he replied "Sir how do you like your meat, we cannot cook to how you want",...

Our visit was a last minute emergency booking and was very very good in so many ways. Our room no. 54 was "inland view" but we could see little Moniafis Bay and further out to sea and the sun shone on our balcony most of the day. Clean well maintained adequate wifi and plenty of hot water. Location was out...

Wonderful hotel & resort. Excellent staff with a great attitude, nothing too much trouble. Liked the fact that there is a separate adult pool. Variety of food (and drink) needs to be seen to be believed. A bit out of the way but no real need to leave the resort. Visited late in the season and still a fully functional...
