We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights and it was a last minute decision to book there. The position of the hotel is excellent - straight on the beach, with private beach of the hotel, and that’s exactly what we’ve booked this hotel for, together with the wish of having some fresh breeze and sound of the waves entering our room. For this we’ve originally booked a beachfront double, but managed to change for a suite, which had a large terrace overlooking the sea and the beach. As fantastic as it sounded, we could hardly keep the door to our terrace open, as our suite turned out to be just above/next to a kitchen, so instead of fresh air we’ve had smell of kitchen and some grill all the time. The hotel overall seemed to be something of an assembly line, in which there were so many guests, that, either because were not enough hands or time to clean the rooms thoroughly, the room didn’t give us an idea of freshness. The breakfast in the hotel is probably ticking all the boxes in terms of items to choose from in the breakfast buffet, but was very basic and didn’t impress us with the great quality. Then there was some language barrier, too, as a chef at the egg station didn’t manage to understand what “fried eggs” was. That said, the reception staff was friendly and the beach bar was fairly good. To sum up, great location, but only OK hotel.

Great just for the location and friendly staff
Great location and amazing private beach. Hotel staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel per se however is outdated. The pool area is not appealing and breakfast could have been better. The bedroom was old, but decent size. Balcony of our room was dirty and with a broken chair, and the bathroom was a little dirty.
