First morning back and I'm already missing the views from our room. I'll get my gripes out of the way first after reading some of the negative reviews I can only assume that we must have been at a different hotel, yes there are steps and lots of them seen as the hotel is perched on the side of a rock. But if you read all the previous reviews you would have known this they wont suddenly disappear! If you don't like steps or are elderly or infirm then yes they could be a problem. Likewise if you try and eat your own bodyweight in food everday like some of the guests then again the steps may pose a problem.
Comments on the staff being miserable are again way off you could not meet more friendly hospitable people, all it takes is basic human skills, please and thank you, get you a long way. But unfortunately some of the guest's we encountered fell way behind this level of intelligence, simply barking demands at the waiters may possibly not get the happy smile one would expect.
We found all the staff extremely helpfull and pleasant considering that they seem to work 14 hours a day.
This was our second visit to the hotel and found everything to be clean and tidy yes there is some rubbish on the beach and quite a lot of seaweed but this is hardly the hotel's fault all the hotel grounds are kept extremely clean and tidy.
Pleanty of choice in the restaurant for all tastes, its not P & O Cruise standard but its not P & O prices considering all the different nationalities that the hotel is catering for the food is excellent.
Overall a fantastic place to chill out and unwind. Ignore the negative comments just have a open mind and you will have a fantastic holiday.
