Very poor experience. Housekeeping didn't do its job well, food was not that good, reception didn't help us with problems regarding stolen credit cards, watches and money and hotel staff was rude at times. Also we had to pay for things we didn't break or destroy (like dirty towels that were said to be full of puke but weren't) Location...

This is a great hotel for teens around 16 - 30 years old. Location of the hotel is very good, 1 minute to the beach and the main party street. 2 good sized pools, 2 outdoor bars, good food, cool lobby and restaurant, clean and big rooms.

There are quite a few negative reviews here about this hotel. I don't understand what people expect. Facts are the location is unbeatable, staff very friendly (if you treat them nice, what some forget about) and the rooms and hotel were constantly cleaned. The food at this level very good and you could see that the head chef took pride...

We stayed at the Gladiola Star the first week in July 2014. Most of the recent reviews here are correct. This hotel caters to young (mostly German) teens. The ones we talked to were still in high school. The come here to party. This is not a hotel for families. The room we were given had an airconditioning malfunction and...

I've just returned from this Hotel after 2 weeks stay, the only criticism is that they allow All Male Groups, which is not suitable for couples and children, as they are very noisy, in the restaurant, bars and corridors at night, returning from night clubs around 4-5am being noisy and continually knocking doors, only had a couple of nights good...
