Spent a relaxing week here and found the hotel very acceptable although would question its 5* rating. Staff were extremely helpful and polite and could not do enough to help us. The real weakness was the beach which was rather narrow and crowded. Sunbeds were available and could be reserved but the best ones seemed never to be available.......and rarely used! Perhaps a hefty tip might have improved our prospects. Giant sized Russians obviously had the where with all to get the best! I wasn't going to agrue with that! The pool was OK just, but the thermal pool was fun 35 degrees mostly but 39 degrees on one day. Our superior villa were very good...tidy clean and extremely comfortable etc. Air con was fine. as was the small private garden. But no view of any merit. Food was great. Excellent buffet starter, fish was fantastic. Avoid steaks which were rather fatty. Those with a hefty appertite will certainly not be diasappointed. Did not try the Gourmet Restaurant. Sadly breakfast came too soon after dinner but there a great selection to tempt all.
Hotel location is superb (for my wife) ... only a few minutes walk from an array of fashion shops. D & G, Prada, Armani, Hermes, Versace but sadly no M&S or Matalan.
For those who want a quiet restful break and for whom good food is important with some designer shopping thrown in then you can't go wrong with this hotel. But don't be dazzled by the 5*, more a good 4*.
