The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We booked a superior room and was more than happy with the room. Plenty of space... More

Booked quite some time ago after reading glowing reviews unfortunately what we found was not what we expected. As other reviewers the cleaning of rooms leaves a lot to be desired our bed linen was not changed at all during a 2 week trip! The cleaner would come at the strangest times of day and on the 2 occasions when... More

The double glazed patio doors cut out all outside noise. There is a small but nice pool area and a reasonably priced bar.The breakfast in the roof top restaurant was excellent with a huge choice...
