    Nice resort. Very friendly staff. Clean room. Only negative points: the food (not enough variation) + the hotel is not situated next to the beach. We missed the beach view. But still nice for a one week holiday in the sun.

    We took only Euros. You cannpay everything with Euros. There is an atm in the hotel if you would want to get local currency, but not really needed. When paying in Euro you may get local currency as change
