Looked up a couple of negatives before we went to this hotel ..first on business but then stayed on for pleasure. I cannot believe what some people write....maybe they have a mental problem or some other axe to grid.
Forget the negatives...this is a fine hotel with good services, well maintained and a suburb location...close to beaches and the centre and harbour.
Rooms are clean and well appointed, and at 28 euro for 3 courses in the hotel restaurant ....including excellent service and freshly cooked food ...you cannot say you are being overcharged.
Breakfast is always good and the choice of heated or standard pools is complimented by a unique sandy beach style pool ....all near the pool bars where both drinks and snacks are on hand all day

Room Tip: See if an upgrade to a harbour side suite is possible...we got one !

A fantastic stay. The staff could not have been more helpful, especially on the front desk/concierge.

We loved the breakfast, in particular the pancakes and omelettes.

The bedrooms are spacious and the bath is incredible - I love the way it slopes back.

Take a pedalo on the lake and look out for the fish jumping out of the water (see photo!).

Close to the Marina and all the amenities, but far away enough to get some peace and quiet.

Highly recommend.

We went there during the April's school break, thinking that the hotel might be busy.Luckily, it was not and we enjoyed the facilities without having to worry about slaloming between other families.We had booked for two rooms, as we could not find any communicating ones through the website, so we were planning on having one adult and one child per room to be safe.The lady at reception was very helpful and found us two linked rooms.Spotless and practical but could do with a kettle &biscuits to polish the overall experience.Our kids loved the outside heated pool, and the Beach made one( complete with sand, beautiful..).The real beaches were about 5 minutes away once you'd crossed the magnificent garden around the lake.The surrounding are absolutely gorgeous, and you can-once outside the grounds-re access the hotel through a few different doors with gate/Buzzer ( possibly camera).The restaurant ( breakfast )had an enjoyable terrace and plenty of choice of food-Continental or full breakfast/pancakes/omelettes on demand...fruit juices etc (including bubbly if that's what you fancy .....I did not but it is a nice touch!). The service in the restaurant was not the best., when you are used to 5 stars service-which we are-but we were pretty chilled and did not really take badly the fact that they seem a little overwhelmed when the hotel was filling up a bit more, towards the end of our stay.I had to try the spa facilities and treatment.Massage was very professional and the treatment rooms are clean and spacious compared to a lot of spa places I know in the UK.The pool has a few buttons you can press yourself to get different types of massage with water.There are also a jaccuzzi and a "Dead Sea" small pool.The bed are clean and attended discreetly behind a bar like area -where you can help yourself with herbal teas/water...) I was by myself most of the time:-)!Sauna, steam room and 3types of shower (alternative, freezing one etc.not my thing but if it's yours, they have a good pressure and kept clean.The essential oil one smelt gorgeous).We never had dinner there as the hotel is 10 minutes tops from Marina and there is no animation whatsoever inside so really boring for the kids (and us!!).The bar is grossly over priced so after a very expensive drink the first night, we never sat there again either!

When you book a 5* hotel you expect some things that come along with the stars and the price you pay for it. The Lake Resort offers that in a pretty standard way and not more than that. I think the service actually needs to improve a lot, as for instance it is not normal that at breakfast time, I have to look for my own table after walking around for 5 minutes for a clean one and being ignored for all the staff present and this in April, when the hotel was not full at all. Beside, we reserved a see view room (for which we paid 70 or 80 euros more) which I definitely not recommend at all. It is a totally waste of money. The sea is far away (even on a frontal view) and with so many rooms available they managed to give us a room far away from everything and with only a partial lateral sea view that was a real joke. Needless to say we asked to move and ended up on a garten view bedroom, but at least close to everything. I have to say it was at the end our choice as the alternative they offered us was even worst but at the end we had to pay for the sea view anyway. Sometimes a little bit of management real attention on some little details can make a big difference beetween a standart hotel and one that makes all the difference. This still has to happen at the lake resort. Bedrooms and food also nothing special. The best thing about this hotel is without any doubt the swimming pool area with the sandy swimming pool and a nice pool bar to match. Really very agreable and great if you are travelling with little children. The access to the beach is a bit of a walk, as you need first to cross the hotel open garden around the artificial lake, then you have to cross the road and walk until one of the bridges that gives you access to the beach. On a sunny hot day and carrying kids with you, it is the least convenient 10,15 min walk I can imagine and I don't recomment it at all if you are a beach lover, because your alternative will be to stay at the pool all the time to avoid the hassle. Well, pretty average experience and for that price I am staying somewhere else next time.

We have just returned from a 5 day stay at this hotel, 3 days of which was for a conference where they catered for nearly 300 of us excellently. Beautiful hotel , excellent facilities including a man made 'beach' pool. Beautiful setting close to the Marina and the magnificent beaches..... excellent food throughout but especially the Fusion restaurant - 28 euros for 3 course meal....superb!!! Would most definitely go back!

Room Tip: we were upgraded to an Apartment Suite Blocks b & C have best location
