The staff here cannot do enough for you. I have stayed here three times and have always enjoyed my stay. My mother is diabled and Rania and her staff always go out of their way to help us. The WiFi isn't great, but I think this is due to the local infrastructure and not down to the hotel. The place...

There is constant and late hours bar service with kitchen service food on demand. The only downside - unless you want a quieter holiday - is the position in...

This was our second visit to this wonderful small hotel with friendly staff where nothing is too much trouble. Rania and her team go out of their way to make your holiday enjoyable. We opt for half board at a cost of €15 a day and its well worth it as we love breakfast by the pool and our evening...
