The best of this resort is the great view - beautiful nature, sea, no view of industrial buildings or other hotels.... If you are looking for a very quiet place, if you are a romantic couple who does not need anything else, this is a spot for you.
We travelled with our small kids, so this place was not the best for them. There is no kids club, no kids pool, not even a small playground. There was a big pool to use, but no beach unfortunately. I think that is one of the biggest disadvantages of this hotel. Small kids on a "beach vacation" need more various things to do than just swimming the whole day in one pool.
Also, the breakfast was very limited (not buffet style), not many choices, so if you are staying there for a few days, you kind of get tired of the same breakfast.
You can go for a lunch or dinner to the one restaurant in the hotel, but the meal quality was not very good. They need a better chef.
It was unpleasant for us that we could not really walk out of the resort any time we wished (to go to a local supermarket or to a restaurant of our choice) - every time you wanted to go out you have to order a taxi to drive approx. 20 mins to get to the closest city. So this did not give us a feeling of freedom, we felt trapped.
Also, there is no internet in the rooms - only in the restaurant (and unfortunately it did not work many times). Also, the satellite connection did not work in our room.
Otherwise the hotel is ran by two British ladies who are very nice and who will try to do almost everything they can to meet your needs.
