We have been coming here for years as members of the Beach Club. This year it was refurbished and what an improvement! New TVs and more comfortable beds in the apartments. The hotel always had an impressive entrance but it looks even better now. Modern yet welcoming. The outdoor pool is shallower so it has a chance to get warmer!... More

The hotel is a gold standard in late sixties and early seventies splendour. Vast open areas, sunken ponds, concrete with frescos. This place has it all.
