Room was excellent. Very comfy and excellently furnished and very clean. Breakfast was very good with a good choice and quality. Reception were a little brusque and seem a bit stressed. Book cheap deal with logitravel which resulted in room next to a lift - not so good.

Twin room 156 had two huge "single" beds that were very comfortable, the sea view was excellent and the small balcony was ideal for grabbing a quick lunch. The hotel is right on the beach. Lounger wars did not quite break out around the pool / sundecks but you had... More

For many years (really many), this hotel has been a favourite for regular visitors from the UK.
