Stayed 2nd and 3rd week in May,a review after the first week would have been excellent however the cracks started to appear after the first week as the hotel started to fill up.
Cleanliness throughout the hotel and grounds could not be faulted,all the staff very friendly and hard working.
Only on our first night were we greeted at the door,this enabled the shorts and flip flop brigade to come dine without making an effort.Nine times in the fortnight we had to set our own tables,there just was nt enough staff.Could nt fault the food although it did get a bit samey near the end which is to be expected.Lunch was served by the beach which was nt ideal as it soon became cold,but the freshly made pizzas were fantastic.A 4 star hotel should really have a choice to be able to eat inside or out.
The Main Bar
Only open from 4,the service situation was frustrating to say the least.Many times despite being the only one at the bar you would be sent back to your table to wait for the waiter to come and take your order.On one occasion we sat approx 4 yards from the bar slightly to the right and waited 25 minutes for service,another night we had the table directly next to the bar,we could nt get any closer but still were kept waiting 20 minutes.Despite there being a lovely piano in the bar there was no entertainment at all.There was a couple of nights at the beach bar when entertainment was on,the rest was poor including bingo night(farcial)and quiz night(chaotic).
At the side of the main bar is a courtyard and a couple of rooms which would be suitable for families to enjoy the evening,but instead we had toddlers clambering over fabric sofas in nappies and bare feet.Adults only would have been more relaxing.
The beach is lovely and well kept by the gardeners,the pool is small but the sea is only yards away.Towels are available for a refundable deposit.There is a sewage smell around the lawned areas but not all the time.The location is not good unless you re a mountaineer.Pelakas near the top of the hill has a few bars etc,then theres Kaisers throne at the top which has stunning views over the whole island 30 euros return in a taxi,he gave us a couple of hours and then returned for us.
The room was very modern,4 uk tv channels and loads of storage we were on the 6th floor at the rear which meant the wifi(not free,should be really )did nt work,but worked in the reception area.Nice touches were the bottle of wine on our first night and a bottle of water in our room every day.Overall just a little tweak here and there needed with more staff in the restaurant,lunch in the restaurant and better sevice at the bar.
If you want a relaxing get away from it all break with nothing to do,this will suit you fine.
