  • Nice SCHOOL
  • The resort itself was sadly below average standards. Rude and moody staff and clearly don't want to work there. (except for the friendly young french bloke behind the bar and the maintenance guys). Pool bar was never open. Extortionate price for an average buffet. Remember to bring your own food and alcohol from the mainland as the prices in the resort are a rip-off. Zero entertainment in the evenings. Only thing to do is watch TV in your room (no english speaking movie channels). The only reason I've given it 2 stars is for the beautiful sandy beaches and clear turquoise waters. Snorkelling with lots of turtles was the highlight.
