A bustling all inclusive hotel, its poolside area is packed with sunbeds and terraces are full of tables and chairs. The attractive roof top bar with its sea views and calm atmosphere and the chic cocktail bar stand out.
All areas are modern. Popular with guests from all over Europe, it is particularly suited to families with the children’s club, games room and children’s pool with small slide.
2 distinct building styles and appears to have been formed from 2 separate complexes. The original towering grey blocks have archways whereas the newer main block is more modern, coloured in grey and burgundy with metal railings. Both have compact balconies with railings. Terraces are slightly more spacious but some are less private as they spill out onto main pathways.

The reception and lobby is modern with grey marble, wood and a lighted shell feature. The bright upstairs lounge has chunky wicker furnishings, a projection TV and a games area with internet terminals. In contrast the plain restaurant features older style green stained bamboo furniture that extends to an outside terrace.
A funky cocktail bar with plasma TVs offers a late breakfast and leaves large bottles of local brandy and Raki out for guests to help themselves to shots. There is a small spa with Jacuzzi, sauna and a fair sized gym.
Greenery is limited to the hedges and palms bordering pathways, and flowering vases are dotted around. The pool at the original block has metal steps and a wooden decked surround that houses tables and chairs from the cocktail bar on one side.
The secondary oval pool is more spacious with walk-in entry, a separate children’s pool with slide and a small wooden pool bar.
An outdoor stage with a seating and games area is in front of the restaurant’s outdoor terrace. In the evenings a spacious, modern roof top bar is open with views along the coastline.
