We stayed at this hotel for a family holiday, the apartment that we stayed in was in a block that was also rented by local people so was outside the main complex of the resort. We had a standard one bedroom apartment, for two adults and two children aged 10 & 18. I would NOT recommend this accommodation to a family/party of more than 2. The sofa bed in the living room that we slept on for a week was the most uncomfortable bed that I have ever experienced. The maid service was fantastic and we had clean bedding and towels daily. On the website that we booked through it said that a standard room came with A/C but no standard rooms do so be ware! Also the safe is chargeable , again this was included on the website that we booked through. When we questioned this with reception they in so many words dimly said its their website that has the correct information! Who no a days books direct with the hotels they stay at! So just be sure to check what you are getting included. The resort is a 10 minute walk from the beach and restaurants but it is a hilly walk and I would not recommend with a pushchair or the elderly or hard of walking. The local bars and restaurants by the beach were all very nice to eat at and very reasonably priced. We ate once for lunch in the resort but was very disappointed, we had burgers and chips. After a long wait they arrived but were all severed cold. The staff were not a cheery as I would have expected from a holiday resort but not rude. The evening entertainment we did not attend as it was nicer to go to the beach front and enjoy the atmosphere. The entertainment always started really late, around 10pm if I remember right! If I had young children I would have struggled. Overall it was a nice place and the views and beach are amazing, well worth a visit. Just book wisely.
