Myself and my partner returned from the Forum Beach on 5th July. We were a bit apprehensive after reading all the negative reviews but we needn't have worried.
Reception staff were very helpful with a quick check-in. Our room was not one of the renovated ones but needless to say it was very clean and to a high standard. We did see a newly decorated room which was very nice. You have the option to upgrade to a superior room for an extra 20 euros a night but we were happy with the allocated. Nice pool view on the 2nd floor.
3 pools all very cleaned with plenty of sunbeds so no need to get up at the crack of dawn to reserve one. There is also another pool at the back of the hotel but it is not clearly signposted so was not sure if it belonged to the Forum Beach or the neighbouring hotel. There is a spa which you recieve discount vouchers but it was closed when we were there which was a shame as all the services were reasonable priced.
Food was very nice but not alot of choice. Snack bar was also very nice serving a selection of filled rolls, salad and pastas. If possible have a pizza which are made whlst you wait, they are to die for.
All staff were very nice and helpful. Alcoholic spirits (in my opinion) are watered down ALOT but the beer was not too bad.
Beach is literally 2 mins across the road with allocated beds for Forum Beach customers but there is no sand just pebbles, alot of pebbles.
A selection of shops, restaurants and tavernas are only a 5 min stroll up the road.
My only negative point about the hotel is the entertainment.....TERRIBLE!!!! Mini disco is as far as the entertainment goes and like previous reviews, the birdie song isn't something I want to listen to every night!
Beware of mosquitos, take repellant.....ALOT of repellant. My poor legs are still showing signs of being bitten too death :(
Overall, a very enjoyable holiday and would defineatly go back.
