The Hotel was very good overall. Exceptionally clean with several pools to choose from including an Adults only pool, however a lot of the area around this pool was in shade by around 4:00pm. Although there were signs about not leaving towels on beds this was still widely done without any issue from the hotel. Having a private beach across the road was also good, although the beds were chargeable (8 euros for 2 beds plus a parasol). Staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. Pool towels were available with a deposit altough quite small and thin. On the downside there were very few Brits at the Hotel as it is a mainly Scandinavian resort. There was only 1 bar for the all inclusive which was a bit restrictive and the cocktails were poor. In order to get a reasonable strength drink you need to ask the bar staff to hold back on the ice and give you a double measure which they were quite happy to do. The evening entertainment was also not very good. Maybe it's better during high season? The only other complaint we had was that there was no tea or coffee making facilities in the room. Generally the food was very good with a wide selection. Overall I would still recomend this hotel.
