On the plus side the pool is lovely, big enough for a good swim with both a shallow and deep end. The poolside bar is good, we never had to wait very long for service. The snack bar is useful between meals. Our room was clean and fairly large. The food was very good, plenty of variety, lots of salads and always chips available. Fresh made pancakes and omelettes for breakfast and bizarrely a plate of Turkish delight amongst the sweet stuff. The staff are top notch, they clear the tables very quickly and are always cheerful and polite. The whole atmosphere is laid back and relaxing.
What's not so good?
If I were to criticise anything it would be the rather tatty plastic glasses used during the day (for safety around the pool area) and the fact that our room 107 was facing the perimeter fence and the road outside, this led to a lot of noise from the hotel opposite being a nuisance until midnight, although this is a minor point. Reception was a hit and miss affair, the man on duty was terrific the woman much less so, she didn't really help much with the shuttle to sea horse beach and we accidently got on the wrong one the first time. It wasn't a problem though.
Out and about.
The main resort centre is quite near and a short walk brings you right into the middle of the pedestrian street. Lots of shops and bars etc. At the bottom of the street is the beach, a bit pebbly but very nice. Here you can watch the paragliders coming in to land. The free shuttle from the hotel takes you to Sea Horse Beach where if you are AI the sunbeds and parasols are free. This beach is on the lagoon which is calm, clean and super for swimming, lots of fish to see too.
A lot depends on what you want I suppose. There are plenty of the holiday camp style games and exercise classes going on all day. I found the evening stuff less appealing, but that's just me.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel, in spite of the wedding that another reviewer complained about. We rather liked watching the bride and groom.
