We booked with Thomas Cook to visit this hotel in October 2009. We used TripAdvisor to find a hotel suitable for our needs and this hotel was the best that Thomas Cook did in the area (review-wise).
Tripadvisor came up trumps. We got exactly what we thought we were going to get.
Hotel immaculate. It's a 4-star hotel, but 5-star cleanliness.
Beautiful hotel, marble everywhere. 5-star feel to it !
Rooms are lovely. Not 100% sure, but I think every room has its own living room area and balcony.
Food - We didn't want half board (just B+B would have been fine (or so we thought)), but the hotel's beautiful location forces you to eat in (with the exception of a single cafe/restaurant 200m away), so it turned out that the forced half-board (with Thomas Cook) was spot on. The food was very tasty indeed. Huge variety of dishes. You'd have to be a VERY fussy eater to not find something you liked. Vegetarians also seemed well catered for. Only complaint - the odd dish was over-salted.
Staff - Generally very nice and helpful but see Bad Points (also)
__Bad Points__ (I feel guilty for putting these, because we had such a lovely holiday)
Staff - I'm nitpicking here, but the staff were a bit lax at clearing away dirty plates and setting up new tables.
NO ROOM SERVICE. I should learn but 4-star in Europe doesn't mean room service like it does in the UK. Sometimes, it's nice to not have to get dolled up for some food.
Spa Area - We visited it on the first day and we're told that the pool heater was broke. My wife is disabled, so a hot swim has huge therapeutic value so big disappointment.
Single Cockroach - I only saw ONE cockroach throughout the whole holiday and I am hypersensitive to them 'cos my wife hates them. It wasn't in the bedroom and my wife didn't see it otherwise this would have been a very different review. It was behind the bar in the reception area. It crawled up a marble column and slid under the work surface. It was a biggie, but it was the ONLY one I saw, so for hot climes, that is a result !
In summary, we had a great holiday. The good points far outweighed the bad and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others.
