When we booked this hotel we requested a twin room but the room we had been allocated had one double bed and a small pull out bed. When we moved the cushion on the sofa bed there were lots of tiny insects crawling around. We went back to reception and explained why we were not happy staying in the room. Poly the receptionist apologised profusely and gave us a free drinks voucher so we could enjoy a drink on the terrace while she sorted us out another room. The second room on the top floor was lovely. The sun was on the balcony from 10am until 8.30pm and the views of the marina were beautiful. My only criticism was there were no tea or coffee making facilities. There were a few issues with various things not working in the room but I feel it would be unfair to detail them as they were rectified promptly once reported.
We stayed on a half board basis and the food was very good indeed. The pool area has a nice relaxing vibe. There were very few children staying at the hotel, probably due to the lack of kids facilities and entertainment which suited us perfectly. We only had one day (Sunday) when there were no sun loungers. There was a lifeguard who was also employed to remove towels from sun loungers if they were unoccupied for more than 30 minutes. This obviously stopped people from selfishly claiming a spot then going off for the day.
The hotel is a fair walk from the centre and a 10 minute walk to the nearest supermarket. We spent quite a lot on taxis as it took 30 minutes or so to walk into town.
The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and efficient (especially Poly the receptionist).
It takes about 20 minutes by taxi from the airport which costs around 20 - 25 euros.
If you are looking for a 'chill out' break with good food, sun and a good book by the pool, then this is the place for you.
