We stayed here as a group of lads during the last week of July. The hotel is run by two brothers Ari and Dimitri who are absolute legends. When we first arrived they were very welcoming and made us feel right at home throughout the entire holiday. The hotel bar also acts like a reception and there is always somebody available to help you out throughout the day and the evening. The food and drink they serve is well made and reasonably priced aswell. Although the rooms are a little basic, they provide everything you need, and your only really ever in them to get changed or sleep anyway. Ari and Dimitri are very helpful and can be trusted to look after any of your personal belongings behind the reception like your room key or phone etc when you go out. There is also a security guard called George who is awake throughout the night who is also very nice. There is music by the pool playing all day, and if you ask you are allowed to plug in your own iPod aswell. Theres loads of room around the pool and plenty of loungers, and there is sun around the pool throughout the entire day. The poolsize is reasonable, but I prefer it like that as it is easier to make friends with other groups staying at the hotel. If you want to get drunk easily, ask Ari or Dimitri to make you an illusion, they're amazing! The hotel is literally a 2 minute walk away from the strip, so you are close to all the nightlife, but are out of the way from all the noise/aggro when you want to sleep. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a similar style of holiday. Ari and Dmitri you are the best!
