    ‘A beautiful paradise.’ Original review (automatically translated)

    If you love flowers and nature, you will feel like in paradise here. The hotel was very clean, asked a great offer of sports activities, pools, massages and a very good culinary offer. Also, many languages were spoken here, so even questions about leisure activities were easy to clarify. The staff was very accommodating and also requested a transfer to the airport. There are so many ways to spend your free time here. In general, I was satisfied all around. Only to recommend!!! show more

    • Hotel in general
      Cleanliness, language offer, helpfulness, location directly on the sea, culinary for everyone. Everything was fulfilled 100%.
    • Service and hospitality
      Always helpful staff, quick solutions for any request.
    • Cuisine
      It was a huge selection. Every day there was a different offer. Once even with live music and barbecue. Here no wishes remain unfulfilled.
