Very enjoyable stay at this hotel, breakfasts were very enjoyable with a varied buffet. Location excellent, staff friendly, also clean rooms with excellent maid service. Evening Meals at the hotel could have been made rather more interesting, however on the whole one of the best hotels I have stayed at.

I really liked staying here as the hotel was very modern and immaculate. We were upgraded to a suite when we had only booked a room. I was very impressed with this as the suite came with self catering facilities. Free wifi all throughout the hotel made our stay even better. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The...

Had a great stay at the Golden Residence. Despite booking a single room was upgraded to a double with a great sea view. The room was a great a large size with a large bathroom. The only con was the location - it's about an hour's walk into the old town but for a peaceful stay it was fantastic and...

Booked five nights in the Golden residence costing nearly 500 euros for an apartment. What a letdown, fridge, two ring hob, microwave and sink. The hairdryer in the bathroom only worked for a minute then went off, had to wait two minutes for it to work again so ended up spending most of the time with damp hair scraped back...

Most hotels in this star bracket are good in that the rooms are clean, the buffet is great and the facilities above standard but where things are tested is when they go wrong and his is where the hotel was amazing. I (incorrectly) thought I had had my wallet taken from the hotel room - turned it upside down and...

The staff at the Golden Residence are the greatest, as are the accommodations. We were upgraded to suites without even asking, unfortunately our suite was an accessible suite and we had to deal with a taller than average toilet and kitchen facilities that were designed for people with disabilities. We traveled with two other couples and requested in advance if...

I made a last minute booking to stay at this hotel with my 17 year old daughter. It did not disappoint in any way. The hotel is modern and clean and we had a lovely view of the sea.
