A genuine 5 star hotel, in a superb location, near the centre of Meloneras, with 5 swimming pools, good facilities and with very friendly and helpful staff. This hotel offers an excellent choice of food in the buffet and lots of food to select. It has 2 speciality restaurants of which there is no extra charge to use if a guest has booked half board. Guests can walk through the reception area, past the buffet and bars through well maintained grounds past the swimming pools to the promenade and sea front. We upgraded our room to a side sea view. The room was spacious and well furnished with a mini bar and safe. There were many clothes hangers. The bathroom was large and well furnished. Everything was very clean and well presented. The only downside was the €20 charge for the safe. I thought this was excessive and I thought there to be no charge for this facility in a 5 star hotel.
