He didn't speak and word of English... More

Went to this hotel in sept 2014 and I thought I'd arrived in France!! The hotel is beautiful and is in a lovely setting right on a private beach but it's also in the middle of nowhere too which is nice at times but there's nowhere to go if you fancy stretching your legs it's located half a mile off...

The hotel was not a bad choice,it's was comfortable enough bed was good view was fine,but sadly not very clean. We spent a full week here and the cleaning depended very much on the staff of the day. Only the bits at the top were free of dust fluff etc. to find a live bug or two and the horrible... More

My son and I stayed for 7 days and we had a fantastic time, the rooms were clean the food was delicious and so much choice. Plenty of sun loungers for everyone, lovely staff very polite and helpful and the cocktails very very nice. I would love to go back for another holiday.

We took a chance by booking this hotel, the reviews were very much mixed (some terrible ones!) but we put it down to people being overly fussy as they were complaining about the bungalow decor for the most part. Unfortunately they turned out to be correct, we were put in a bungalow and, even though we tried to overlook it,... More

We read a review which said the staff were rude. I would not say they were rude, more a bit clueless. We booked online and they said we had to send them an email, we had a mobile and spent 10 minutes sorting that out and then were told, we didn't need to do that? The room was 95 Euro... More
