I never writer a review, so the fact I'm writing one within 12 hours of landing back, shows how outstanding this hotel is. From entering the amazing lobby, which itself is a piece of art, to just everything! On a arrival at reception we were greeted by Osama, we received a drink and towel and a very quick and swift...

We have just returned after a week at this hotel. From the minute we arrived we were taken aback with the spectacular reception area and the friendliness of the staff. We had a room over looking the sea which was cleaned to a very high standard every day. We only had one evening meal in the main restaurant as we...

I am not really light in giving 5 stars. The holiday was very good. The staff helpful. We booked ourselves, with the hotel, and got a very competitive price for a full inclusive holiday. Which was great, because with three kids under 10, the food and drinks requests are continuous. The staff never complained, always smiled, and always answered "with...

From check in to departure we could not fault the hotel or its staff. Although full we never felt rushed or crowded and had no issue with getting a sunbed where we preferred and no problems with certain nationalities putting towels on sunbeds and then not using them, something I'd read previously. Had intended to return in 2016 but sadly...
