I had a good holiday a couple of weeks ago but felt that the hotel need updating it was not a 5 star. After staying in similar hotel's in Turkey I was disappointed with the food the choice was limited and no veg to speak of was served all week, although I booked into the Italian and the other meat resteraunt and both meals were lovely. Breakfast was a long drawn out process if you wanted eggs as per previous comments, but the cereal and fruit was always enjoyable.
The bar staff and the animation team were very friendly and kind nothing was too much trouble and we were kept busy all the time. But the Reception and guest Relations looked board and uninterested when you asked for help. I had to ask for clean towels twice which always arrived but after a couple of attempts that day and were bald and not particularly clean smelling when they arrived.
The Hotel setting is amazing and the sea views from the balcony are lovely,the gardens are well kept but the rooms are tired and small.
The sunbeds were a nightmare we were greeted at 4.30 when we arrived at the hotel by people putting towels on the sunbeds which I laughed at but no thats what people did. There was no where near enough sunbeds for guests. I would not get up at that time on holiday to get a sunbed so yes this was a problem. Although when I went to the jetty and put my towel out at 7 am I was annoyed to find people sat on my sunbeds and a towel had gone missing! We were only at breakfast not out all day like some people did.
No I would not go back to this Hotel because I have been to much better but I stlll had a lovely time thank you to the animation team and the bar staff and waiters who worked very hard to make it an enjoyable holiday.
