Reasons for trip


I stayed here with my sister and brother in law at the beginning of September. I thought I had timed it so that all the school holidays were over. WRONG – I have never seen so many children and prams in my life, mostly European. The hotel itself is quite nice as it has rooms with sea views and the beach is right outside. Unfortunately it was very busy and to hire a sunbed and parasol will set you back 12 euros a day. If was impossible to get a bed by the pool unless you are willing to join a long queue at 9am. We were half board. The dinning room was a nightmare. Difficult to get a clean table, the noise was deafening. If you enjoy sitting in amongst tables piled with dirty dishes which never get cleared this is the place for you! If you are a smoker – be warned you cannot buy cigarettes at shops or supermarkets you can only purchase from tobacco shops which are closed on a Sunday. The odd hotel and bar has a cigarette machine . Entertainment at the hotel was poor geared at Germans/Russians. You may like this hotel if you are taking grandchildren but it is not for adults wanting a relaxing holiday or sit by the pool.
