Very enjoyable holiday here, excellent access to beaches, good pools and views of the sea. Stayed as a family with one young child, the room had a small fridge and microwave, we used the sofabed in the lounge for our little girl. Want to find out how much it will cost me to come back next year!

The hotel is very good for people who enjoy swimming pools. There is one for children and two for adults.The outside pool is on a great spot with views of the ocean and palmtrees. The inside pool and jacuzy smell of desinfectants which make the place a bit intoxicating. The beaches are a short walking distance ( 5/10 minutes). You...

My wife and I spent two relaxing weeks here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room standard is good for the price and the hotel facilities are excellent.
