For a last minute sun holiday at a low price this hotel was perfect. We were half board and found there was always enough choice of food for both breakfast and evening meal. Disappointing that no drinks were provided at all with evening meal, usually on half board basis you are provided with at least soft drinks/water however these were all at a cost which was double to that of the concession bars within the grand resort complex. Fresh eggs were cooked for you for breakfast and on a night you could have fresh noodles. Lunch time food around the area is poor, there is buffet service provided by the hotel for 60ept however this is all offered and few surrounding restaurants.
The room was spacious and again perfect for what we needed it for, towels changed daily and beach towels and beach bag provided. Only the one pool is heated which is a shame however fair enough considering low occupancy, just the side where the sun is hottest is where the pool is not heated.
All staff were extremely friendly and most would do anything for you, we tipped small amounts however did not feel pressured into doing so as have felt in previous hotels.
The surrounding area isn't the most attractive and there is little around the area, however if you want a relaxing sun holiday then this is perfect.
