The hotel was a good hotel for the price we paid. The room was a fair size, we got a standard room. We had a balcony room, which was nice. The air con you have to pay a surcharge for. The hotel staff were always helpful and friendly. There was entertainment in the evening every night at the hotel which was always nice, one night there was a lovely bbq with lots of lovely food, but unfortunatly we had already eaten so didnt have any. The bar was good, although the beers were really watered down, which is what i always expect from a all inclusive anyway, but the prices if you wanted for instance a Whisky and coke were not bad. The buffet food was always nice, something for everyone, although much the same on most evenings, but were a few changes throughout our stay, but it was fine, tasty and what you would expect. The breakfast buffet and lunch buffet were always good too. Breakfast is what you would expect from a continental breakfast, the usual bread, cheese, meat, fruit etc which was nice, although the scrambled eggs did not look great, which i stayed away from. Cerials also provided with chilled milk, and plenty of juices, tea and coffee (although the tea wasnt great). The pools were nice, always clean and always staff around. We did not use the pool often prefering to use the beach. The hotel has its own private beach, with plenty of deck chairs, although have to pay a fee for these, but it wasnt expensive. The beach was nice, but was quite rocky in the sea but once you got past the rocks it was ok. Beware of the sea urchins tho, as i stood on one and it was quite painful, but the hotel medic was good help and told me what it was and advised me on treatment. The location was ok. It was out of the centre, so didnt get too noisy at night time. We walked into the town centre each day and evening, although there is a lack of a foot path the road doesnt get busy, except for the mopeds that you can hire from the town. It was approximatly a 20 min brisk walk, it was quite a nice walk, past shops etc, but in the heat it was a bit hard going, but nothing to strenuous. There was a few convienience stores near by so was good for snacks etc, and there is a few restaurants near the hotel, in particular a greek one which was lovely, this was about a 10 min walk from the hotel. Overall i would recommend this hotel, for the price it is great, the only let down was the distance from the town, but the hotel description does state this, so if looking for a centre hotel then dont choose this one, but if you dont mind a 20 min walk, then this one is great, as it is away from most of the noise of the clubs and pubs at the evening.
