We have just got back from a week long holiday here. We are a young couple and have had a wonderful holiday.
The hotel is basic (as you would expect from the price), but the staff are so friendly and helpful, bar prices very cheap (around €2 euros for an alcoholic drink), food is basic but delicious, and rooms were very clean.
The location of the hotel is fantastic, literally a one minute walk from the beach, and plenty of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars right outside. There is also a car rentals place down the road that does all the excursions you could think of for approx €40 per adult. We went on 3 and we're very impressed with the service.
We stayed half board. Breakfast consisted of a selection of cakes, cereals, croissants, bacon, scrambled egg, fried egg, meats and cheeses. Also included unlimited juices and coffees/teas which you could help yourself to. Evening meals varied but usually there was salad, potatoes, soup, a fish dish, pasta, chips and a meat dish. You do have to pay for drinks in the evening but as I said before, these are very cheap. All in all the food did get a bit repetitive but what can you expect of a buffet? It was delicious and I would have been happy to eat there every night if we hadn't have wanted to try some of the restaurants in the area too.
I have noticed that a number of people have said that this a mainly german area. Although this is true there were also plenty of English people and bars and everyone we spoke to spoke English so we did not feel alienated at all.
The staff were also very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. When we checked out it was half 5 in the morning, the restaurant was obviously closed and we had only a couple of euros left. The man on reception made us coffee and orange juice and even gave us some cakes to take with us. All free of charge. You would be hard pressed to find anywhere in England that does that!
If you are looking for a budget hotel that's close to the beach and nightlife then i would certainly recommend the sultan. It's not the hilton and the area is hardly ibiza if you re wanting to go clubbing, but we really enjoyed ourselves and would certainly go back again.
All the moaners on here should try spending a bit more money if they want a 5 star hotel! Also with regards to the fact that you have pay extra for the tv - you re on holiday so why would you want to be inside watching TV anyway?
The only thing I would say is that the rooms do not have air con so it did get very hot in the room at night. However we kept the door open and the sea breeze cooled us down some what.
