Took other reviewers advice and booked a sea view room. This hotel is in a prime position on the main road opposite the sea. Near enough to be only a short walk into the town but far enough away to be away from the crowds. Our room was one of the largest we have ever stayed in and was well decorated and very comfortable. It even had a sofa area opposite the tv. Although some reviews were not too complimentary of the food, we could not complain. Yes perhaps some of it was repetitive but the main course was varied and good quality. Entertainment we thought was not varied enough. Too much of it just dancers, a singer or band would have been nice. A very clean hotel overall and the staff very friendly. Our only gripe was the lack of sunbeds at the poolside which would appear from the hotels visitors book at reception was everyone's complaint. To sum up a very good holiday in a nice hotel and resort.
A couple of tips- prices appear to be cheaper if you turn left out of the hotel and walk away form the main town area. Well recommended is the "Obelix bar -bistro" which is run by a very friendly Dutch couple. Also if you fancy a change and an excellent meal out of the hotel try the "Restaurant Bokos". Situated in an elevated position above Amoudi Beach. Not easy to spot as the name Bokos is not too prominent.
