Well worth a visit, restaurant food / service good, rooms basic but clean, fine for a week in the sun. Entertainment is aimed at the French guests, but didn't bother us at all. For what we paid, worth every penny. Will return again for sure

Having read some of the reviews I was a bit concerned about booking this - we stayed for 3 nights for a girls weekend away Arrived Friday at noon - room was ready although a bit basic (take a hairdryer) but we only slept in it Restaurant was good - good choice of food - drinks a bit limited in...

Lovely hotel in a beautiful relaxed resort. The hotel is mainly french speaking but this meant, in my opinion, the standard and range of food was better. It also meant a more relaxed atmosphere with less boozed up Brits around drinking from breakfast onwards - which suited us. The evening entertainment isn't great - a mime show one night was...

Basic, clean accommodation with great food and pools. Staff are helpful and friendly. Majority of guests are French but this made our holiday even more relaxing as we could not listen to any nearby conversations!! Will go again.

This is a French hotel, if your British or english spoken your totally ignored by all staff or treated like a 2nd class citizen , even the dutch couple we met said same thing. Seems to be a band colour scheme in place so french get red , all others get blue ... All activities etc are in french ,...

The four of us (two couples), were originally booked for Turkey as independent travellers, to a villa, with flights booked separately. With the expense of transferring flights and administrative fees, we decided to book an all inclusive hotel, again independent from the flight. We were seeking something a bit different and after a great deal of searching I came across...

Having read the reviews on here I felt a bit concerned that as English people we were going to be ignored and feel out of place.well it was not like that at all!

As per most people we read all the reviews of this hotel and apart from a few xenophobes the reviews on here are pretty accurate, the hotel itself is a number of separate villa type structures with perhaps 8 to 12 rooms in each set over a lovely gardened location, there are 3 pools one of which is adult only,...

Very clean, great food, friendly staff and we even had breakfast waiting at 4.45am! The rooms were spacious and well air conditioned. Pools were clean and safe. Our only disappointed was that ALL the activities and entertainment were in French or Spanish which limited the enjoyment. Other than that we had a great time with no pestering for food or...

“our rooms were a short stroll from the pools and bar which meant it was quiet on the balconies. Both were on the ground floor and totally quiet once the doors were shut”

“Higher floors have private balconies, try and be further away from hotel building/entertainment - can be loud at night.”
