“Couldn't wait to get as 'Far Out' as possible”
Reviewed 18 August 2006

A very unpleasant stay. Firstly, my fiance and I (who are both in our early 20s) had booked a double bed, we were given 2 single beds. As tolerant as we were, we accepted and didn't bother complaining. Secondly, at breakfast in the dining area we were attacked by wasps. Not just one or two but at least a WHOLE colony (we ended up escaping back to our room for breakfast)! It couldn't get any worse considering we had no sleep since there was a tour of immature, disrespectful 20-somethings who kept us awake across 3 nights with their swearing and drunken behaviour (hooligans running around and knocking on doors at 4am), but it did get worse, one morning we decided to have a sleep in. While we lay in bed, the lady who makes up the room came through and tidied up whilst we were still in bed. You better believe it when our time here was up and we were dying to get out!!!

The stay was marvelous.
The staff is very nice and 24 hours present at the reception. At any time you come at the hotel you have nice and pleasant hello no matter how drunk or sober you are. The pool is very nice and the bar near that makes the best coctails i ever drink. The view on the Manganari beach is hard to describe with words...

It is paradise on the earth!!
