We recently stayed at this resort in April 2014 and the views from our room were gorgeous. Great location for walks. The suite we had an excellent layout for our family. However the rooms were very hot and we couldn't seem to turn down the thermostat. Also, the food choices in the restaurant were not very good. My son didn't... More

We enjoyed a four night dinner, bed and breakfast deal here at the beginning of October. It couldn't have been better for a break with our toddler. The views from the room were stunning and the staff were all friendly, cheerful and willing to help. From the moment I booked, communications were clear and friendly and they were happy to... More

Nice hotel in beautiful surroundings. We had a lovely time but beware, couples only dining at 7.30 in zone C doesn't always happen. We booked to have meals in a child free zone but had young children eating with us for 5 nights which is not what we were expecting. We were given a bottle of wine as an apology... More

On business. The lunch provided offered little in the way of alternatives to the hot food. Some cold meats etc would have been nice. No bar apparently available, always nice to have a drink at lunchtime with a big lunch. Parking excellent and staff helpful.

We have just returned home following a 4 night stay on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis. We had a contemporary suite on the 2nd floor with our 14month old son. The hotel has fantastic facilities for kids. It was our first family holiday and a bit anxious about the trip, but everything was totally catered for. We opted for... More

We're just back from a 5 night stay and had a wonderful time. We opted for a contemporary suite so our daughter would have her own room and this worked perfectly. The room was quiet and we had lovely sunset views over the sea. The only slight negative is that the bathroom is in the middle of the suite and... More

The hotel is really lovely overall. Its main advantage is the variety of play areas available for kids indoors and outdoors. The swimming pool was very clean, warm and nice. The staff is extremely friendly. The dinner we had at the restaurant was delicious. A very nice hotel, just a bit too pricey for what it offers.
