Nice - But lacking in the finer touches expected from a 5 Star
Posted Sep 27, 2010
We have just come back, from a weeks holiday.
Overall a very good standard of hotel/service, lovely modern decor throughout. Lovely pools, and amenities within the complex. For a 5 star hotel I was disappointed that the small touches such as slippers/ robes, good quality toiletries were not on offer at this hotel, within the standard of room we booked.
Easy access to beach, for all age groups.
Very safe general neighbourhood, although the area is slightly run down/basic. However, this can only be expected from an Eastern European country. A nice chance to step back away from our modern world.
One comment of negativity would be the immense amount of Smokers/Smoking that was occurring in the hotel and the area as a whole. Fine if you are a smoker, but as non smokers I have to admit it did put a dampner on our trip due to the fact you could never get away from the passive smoke around you, especially when eating in the restaurants. A lot of the smoking was undertaken by the restaurant staff/shop staff in the local area.
All in all we had a lovely trip, and it was just what we wanted - to sunbathe and do nothing but relax. However if you were staying longer and wanted to do more, I would recommend hiring a car or staying in a different area.
