Overall a good stay. if you dont get a seaview room you will be looking at the carpark. Dont bother with the afternoon high tea as its a disappointment. Lovely beach, good food. Inroom lighting for ladies to put on there makeup is not good.

Hotel doesn't have balconies, pool is small, adults smoking shisha in the pool, no kids facilities. Room interior was good, toilets as well. Food acceptable. Expensive hotel considering offered. Location - nothing is nearby.
