Just returned from a week's holiday in this super hotel. When we arrived we were upgraded to a superior room on the 5th floor (room 514) which we were extremely happy with. Free safe, air conditioning, hairdryer, robe, slippers, CD player, TV, bottle of wine, shampoos etc and choice of pillows. The hotel is spotless but what makes the stay... More

Stayed for 7 nights in a standard twin room with sea view. Welcome was poor, greeted by pleasant young porter but no one to point out reception, no welcome drink after travelling since early am and not so much as a smile from reception - Sergio please note. The room was tired, especially the bathroom and could do with considerable... More

Gardens/grounds and beach were good. Public areas of hotel were kept clean, food was varied and plentiful, restaurant staff friendly and helpful. Late booking, good value for money. But................... downside: some rooms, main block, badly in need of refurbishment (old furniture, small cracks in bathroom sink).

Stayed beginning of May, booked via Thomsons. Allocated a room on the 5th floor to the rear of the property, which I would not recommend due to the traffic noise. However this did recede at around 11.30pm but started up again in the early hours, e.g. bin collections!' Don't bother with the rep's meeting unless it has significantly improved. No... More

A dying trend in some hotels! Also dining area has tables inside and out with air conditioning inside if outside not available. Rooms quite basic with an antiquated... More
