Firstly, I would like to tell anyone staying here - do not pay for the all inclusive, there are very few meal options and you will have to pay for a majority of the drinks served (basically anything worth drinking) you will honestly pay less if you simply eat out at the many restaurants nearby that serve great food, and are also very cheap. (The Chieftain was lovely, just round the corner and has amazing staff.) We arrived late, our flight had been delayed to find that the restaurant was closed and the only food option was a vending machine serving hotdogs and burgers etc (I didn't try one, I dread to think what they would taste like) normally when we've arrived late at a hotel, food has been provided but hey ho... The reception staff speak very minimal English, and all you can do to be polite is nod your head while they cross all of the incorrect information on the leaflets you are handed. At least they are polite, though Alina was the only one that knew what she was doing! When we got to our room there was a group of chavs arguing outside, causing a major disturbance (but nothing was done!) there was never anything done when there was a disturbance, I understand people are on holiday but playing Mariah Carey at three in the morning is simply just not on... The hotel was clean, and sleek (Although a tile fell off in the bathroom on the first night, though they fixed it within a day!) not a fantastic hotel, rubbish entertainment for adults, unless you want agitated animals to be passed around while they charge you ten euros for a photo (some variation of this every night) I will say we saw a bit of the kids programme at night, and the entertainer for the children was engaging and great. She is the only merit to this hotel.

Stayed here for a week with my boyfriend all inclusive. Food was ok, but not really that much, breakfast was poor. The room was clean, sheets only got changed once but towels got changed daily. Maids don't knock they just come in. Fridge in the room which was good, you have to pay a deposit for air con & the safe but you get that back when you leave. It's a very young hotel, pool is full of groups of young lads or girls good for a party holiday, but not a relaxing one. One night we came in about 2am the room next to us came in at about 4 slamming the balcony doors, banging on our walls, it carried on for 2 hours before we went to reception. Day time staff are lovely, night time staff are rude & seem like you are just a nuisance. We wouldn't go back because it just wasn't relaxing, you'd walk through the hotel anytime after 10 & it was just dirty, people had spilt drinks in the lift drinks were left everywhere & it was very noisy. Location was good.

Stayed here with two of my mates in mid June 2015, hotel looks a bit old on the outside but is actually really nice and clean inside. The room was sound, shower was powerful and always hot water! Got fresh towels every day except one, and beds were fairly comfy. We went all inclusive which was good, bar staff weren't shy with the servings of alcohol & there was a good selection. Would highly recommend getting the cheese&ham toasties instead of wasting time going into the restaurant, very limited choice and although you wouldn't starve (pasta/chips/some form of meat every day) you would certainly never walk out and feel you had a 5* meal. This wouldn't put me off going again however as the location is great. About 10 minutes walk to the "strip" which is alright but gets repetitive after a few nights due to the limited number of clubs/bars. In the other directions about a 20 minute walk is a couple of really nice sandy beaches, would recommend hiring bikes out and travelling the extra distance to these as the rocky beaches near by aren't great for relaxing on. This hotel did everything we wanted; some where to sleep, all inclusive standard food&drink, and a decent pool. If that is what you want this is perfect for you. Theres also quite a lot of lucky lucky men out and about so watch your pockets when staggering home!

3 of us went for a week trip and I have to say, I always take previous reviews with a pinch of salt and I'm glad I did because I really cannot complain. My only issues were, we had two single beds and a chair that unfolded in to a bed which was incredibly uncomfortable and took up a bit too much space. The rooms were cleaned every day and the staff were very helpful. There was always a lot of choice to eat. (People who obviously complain that the food is samey/samey obviously don't change their diet). There's a large selection of hot food and plenty of salad and a fair selection of fruit and desserts. We really enjoyed it. The staff at the bar are really great, though it's a bit of a pain that you can only get two drinks at a time. There is always space to sunbathe, even up on the 2 mezzanine areas. Would definitely return and on he nights we stayed in we really enjoyed the shows. Also when you have more than two people, 2 key cards would of helped.
