We booked this trip with Thomas Cook online and thought we were going to be staying in the Hotel, but upon arrival at 2am we were told that we were in an appartment, we were given a map and had a few minutes walk to the appartment. Initally I was disappointed not to be in the Hotel, but the appartment was very nice, clean and decorated well and it was actually quite nice to be a short distance from the Hotel and we had a nice along the harbour for meals and to use the Pool etc.
I did hear a couple of other guests complaining that they thought they had booked to stay in the Hotel, but on arrival had also been placed in an appartment, so Thomas Cook perhaps need to make things clearer to customers.
The area was fantastic, the bars, restuarants and shops around the Marina meant we had so much choice and did not have a bad meal outside the hotel, the hotel food was ok, but not as good as the other resturants we used.
There was also a live jazz band playing the the marina square every night which was a nice bonus.
We went on a couple of Thomas Cook trips, the VIP trip costing 68Euros each which is supposed to be a tour of the island, the guide was very good, but the trip itself was a bit of a let down, we stopped on the top of a few mountains and had lovely views, but we would have liked to a bit more such as vists to the cave houses etc which are on the island.
We also went on the submarine trip which is in the marina opposite the hotel, again a bit of a let down, 28Euros each (which is too much) it was a new experience to go in a submarine, but all went round the sea bed for about 30mins, past a couple of ship wrecks, there was no info about what we were passing, just a cheesey tape playing with fake emergencies.
The beach opposite the hotel is very nice and very clean, the sea is very clean and clear, we only used the beach once and the rest of the time we stayed at the hotel pool and used the steps down into the sea which was nice.
Overall, a very pleasant trip, the weather was fantastic for an October break, average temp was proberbly 28c, the appartment was very nice, the staff at the hotel were all pleasent and the hotel was well kept.
I would go back to this location again.
