This hotel looks very nice in the pictures on their webpage, but the actual truth is that it is quite worn. By no means a "luxury hotel". I'm quite surprised it keeps 5 stars. I would rate it 3-4 stars.
The location is quite secluded on the end of a road. This is to our liking as we wanted a quite place. However this was not achieved since there was very load music played on both the beach and at the pool from morning until the night. So there was nowhere on the hotel premises where you could lie outside in just peace and quite and listen to the waves from the ocean.
The food buffet style was ok but not more. I found the food in general to be too salty and greasy, but I am also trying to be a healthy eater. There was never anything that was truly tasty, it was more to eat to kill the hunger.
The beach had pebbles but was quite large and with plenty of sun chairs so you never had to go and put your towels out to "mark a spot German style". The staff on the beach was also very friendly. There was strangely enough no water sports on the beach which would be appreciated such as wind surfing and kayaking.
The clientel when we were there was mostly from Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria.
Would not go back to this hotel nor recommend it to friends.
