This was our 3rd ten night stay in what we now just refer to as 'THE IFA'. Nothing has changed which,when everything is great,is itself great. The welcome, facilities, friendliness of staff, quality of food, cleanliness, rooms and large balconies and all in a fabulous sea-front setting are all the reasons that we endorse and confidently recommend THE IFA and...

Location, on beach, great pool, friendly helpful staff.close to many bars and restaurants. It's a classy hotel, not noisy or constant loud music. They are family orientated but no children's pool or play schemes. Activities for adult available, plus gym etc, but not forced to use them.would say a wide age range but more suited to couples. Liked the idea... More

Clean Hotel, nice situated at the sea and very good breakfast and dinner. Excellent service, good beds. The most I liked the nice view at the sea and the friendly personell. However, the hotel has old guests or young couples. For us, this was no problem.

The hotel is fantastically positioned with a approx 4km beach with dunes right at the back door. There are a number of upmarket shops around the resort and there is next to no litter on the streets or beach. The weather is great with hardly any clouds although when there is they clear away by mid day. The hotel rooms... More

we stayed here in a superior room overlooking sea and pool at front. the room was stylish with plenty of storage and seating, one thing to note is that the sun doesn't actually get onto balcony, although facing south due to the location of island as the sun is directly above most of the time, but after a long time...
