Stayed one night and reception staff were friendly enough but not overly welcoming. Food was ok but nothing out of the ordinary and after reading all the great reviews I expected more. My room had been fairly well maintained and the balcony view was nice enough. In the morning I witnessed someone drive into the car park and rifle through... More

Hubby and I had a great sized double with a nice clean bathroom and very generous tea/coffee tray. Dinner in seaview restaurant good value and food food. Breakfast this morning lovely with a vast...

There's a need to put this in context first, we took a "Telegraph Travel hand-picked" 3 night break (Double Room + Breakfast for two with Harbour View) at a so called saving of up to 53% on the "best available rate" for the three nights of £510 per room per stay - we paid £289 including booking fee which was...

Admittedly, I would probably be writing a different review had I visited during grockel season. However, I had a fantastic stay in a clean, spacious and comfortable hotel with fabulous views over the beach and sea. It was delightful to lie in bed and listen to the sound of the waves and the balcony was well appointed to sit and... More

We spent three days at the hotel. The staff were welcoming,helpful and friendly. Our room was very clean and well equipped. We had a superb sea view. We enjoyed the evening dinners and the full English Breakfasts. We hope to return.

The room at the hotel was fine but any dealings with staff left much to be desired. A lot of the staff did not speak English as their first language which made communication unnecessarily difficult and they did not seem to care about their hotel enough. Breakfast could have been much better. On one day out of two, they ran... More

Had a 2 night break here in October. The exterior is a little tired but once inside the staff are very welcoming. Room was large and clean with spectacular views. Evening meal was exceptional and staff are well managed and all extremely polite. Would have no hesitation in recommending.

We stayed here for a weekend away. We were so lucky to have the weather, it was like being abroad! The outdoor pool area and bar is amazing! It's right on the beech too! The views and the balcony are amazing and rooms are spotless and have everything you could need! The bathrooms even have complimentary shampoos, conditioners, soaps, shower... More
