Very Good

Pros: The general condition of the resort, very well maintained (cleanliness, gardens, pool, beach, structures). For a 8 days vacation entertainment/animation is quite ok. However I would suggest more animation on the beach by night. The food is good (apart from the sushi in Mikado, aweful), loved the pizza place to take some slices throughout the day (Sorrento by the pool of the "general" resort)
Cons: The beach overall is a minus... the space reserved to the royal guests is small and with lots of palmtrees that take you the chance to sunbathe. The options pratically are "always in the sun" or "always in the tree shadows", there are very few beach umbrellas (10 or so) that gives you both options. And for that you need to get up very early, go to the beach and "mark" the sunbeds, as there's no policy about this, people need to go fast or won't find places at all. Mold smell in the room, water dripping and annoying noise of the AC (even when turned off), lack of fruit options in the breakfast (always the same) and pratically no dry fruits. It would be nice a buffet restaurant (not sure if Thalassa's lunch was, but it's way too far from the beach).
