Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in June. Hotel is brilliant, loads of room, very clean, spacious, the only one single thing that lets the hotel down is the lack of matressess on the pool chair beds which was a great pity. I did complain and was told to go and buy a mat from the local shop at €2, well my point was if that's all they cost why did the management not just provide them to keep people by the pool and make sales at the bar!!! Which had a very good selection. There is loads of room around the pool, lovely well tended gardens, there was hardly anybody there while we were there. Really quiet but within stones throw of the rest of the resort, the hotel restaurant has got a good selection of food served piping hot. Would def recommend, hotel rooms have special doors on the rooms which stop them being slammed at all times of the day and night so that was good, it is a low rise hotel nice views from the balcony, ample space in the rooms with good wardrobe storage, staff friendly and eager to please. Would not hesitate to recommend the hotel and surroundings and will return in the future. Enjoy. Booked with last minute.com. Taxi was about €15 from the airport only about 10 - 15 mins away we arrived at about 6.30 checkin very smooth no problems at the airport landing but be careful on departure. All duty free bottles must be in the suitcase or they are confiscated at the airport, you have to queue up outside the airport on return so make sure you have pop or water for the kids, etc. That part of the journey was a bit tiresome as they only let so many people into the airport at a time but the airport has a good selection of things but food is very expensive. We took food and drink with us.
